On 15th September Sote Hub held the first edition of STARTUP FIRE UP, an event set to rejuvenate not only the start-up members but also open to the public.
This event will be held every two months and to feature high level speakers locally. At this premier launch organised by Nayla Hatimy, we hosted three brilliant, young and great Speakers Frank Tamre, C.E.O of Early camp and cofounder Moringa School of Coding; Collins Oduor Principal Consultant at Cyberpro Africa and iLab Africa and Chis Orwa, Head Data Analyst at Brave Venture Limited and formerly at iHub, same capacity.
He pointed out that real hustle and hard work was the baseline of moving forward and RESILLIENCE was going to be a compulsory price in the journey of success.
After lunch break, Collins Oduor, a Cyber Security Guru took over. In a humorous engagement, Collins broke down lot of Internet security aspects and their revelations at individual, business, corporate and government levels.
