EduAbasi Chukwunweike

Founder of Wentors

EduAbasi Chukwunweike finished top of her class in software engineering then went on to complete her master’s degree in informatics and took some other IT related courses to set herself up perfectly for a career in Information Technology. She started her IT career with Microsoft as a Cloud Solution Specialist during which she was given the award of ‘Most Valuable Player’ for the Enterprise commercial segment. After which She moved on to manage the start-up/ISV ecosystem for Microsoft west Africa. In this role she has helped many start-ups/ ISV set up their monetization strategy, improve profitability and position themselves favourably for funding. Since she commenced her career, EduAbasi has delivered consistently on her duties and currently serves as the Start-up lead for Microsoft West and East Africa. Upon taking up her current role as the Partner and Start-up lead for Microsoft West Africa, she has helped many businesses to set up their monetization strategy, improve profitability and position themselves favorably for funding. Her success in this role has been immensely fulfilling for her; because of the way it impacts the individuals behind these businesses. The sore spot however has been the fact that there are rarely any women in the leadership of these companies. Through her many years in the industry, she discovered that gender bias was a norm of which people had become comfortable with. Her passion to see more women in technology occupying lead roles and C-level positions drove her to question the norm and play her part in levelling the playing field for women in technology. Wentors was the outcome of those critical questions.
