Oscar Ekponimo, Rolex Awards for Enterprise 2016 Young Laureate for Applied Technology

Oscar Ekponimo earned a Bachelor of Science degree in computing from Nigeria’s University of Calabar and has completed an online course in technology entrepreneurship at Stanford University in the United States.

He is passionate about IT, and has developed software solutions for private enterprise and national security establishments.

At university, he and friends set up Blue Valentine to distribute warm meals to indigent street kids on 14 February.

In 2013, this initiative evolved into SalvageHub, the precursor to Chowberry that earned him the International Telecommunications Union Award for technology innovation.

Ekponimo also runs Food Drive, an ad hoc Chowberry initiative where he and other volunteers collect products within a week of expiry and distribute them to orphanages and homes for the elderly.

He has always viewed technology as a unique tool for solving many of Africa’s challenges.

According to Ekponimo, it is a medium to express creativity and passion with limitless possibilities, whether it be redefining industries or fostering sustainable development and human advancement.
