Excellence Joshua

President & Mentor

As a Founder, Digital Media Consultant, Pan-Africa Social Entrepreneur, and a blooming African development expert, I have trained and created job opportunities for over 7000 young African women in the Technology Sector since 2019.

As a 25-year-old graduate of Biomedical Laboratory Science from the University of Ibadan, when life hit me hard with divorce, debt, unemployment, and sole domestic care for a toddler like it does to many women in the world today, the only lifeline I found to rebuild myself in 2018, was through technology and digital solutions. As soon as I made headway, I was determined to help other women do the same since 2019.

I founded Techy Train Incubator, a social enterprise focused on bridging the gender employment gap in Africa by increasing the number of women who have relevant technology skills for employment, decent jobs, and entrepreneurship. In doing this, we also provide access to tech talents for African companies and startups to scale cost-efficiently.

I also founded the Techy Train incubator Foundation, which aims to empower women and youths with tools to work out of poverty, care for their families and strengthen their communities. Since 2021, we have empowered over 5970 women from across 35 African countries through the Tech-Up Program with digital skills and job opportunities globally.

As an online media expert, I am proficient in WordPress web development and Digital Marketing. I help businesses make more money online by leveraging digital tools including websites, search engines, social media management, and marketing as well as email management and marketing. I have developed tons of websites and worked as a retainer, contract staff, and employee with organization within and outside the African continent to develop and implement online media strategies for growth and sales.

I am not only results-driven, I am also a multi-award winner and a trailblazer passionate about embracing technology to create sustainable solutions to gender inequality and unemployment in Africa.
