Shireen has completed two months as COO, Mit is one month in as lead engineer, and Blessing, who leads our community building in Nigeria, is now easily our longest-serving member. Ending the partnership with Sana, our original CTO, was difficult, yet amicable. Moreover, as the business model takes shape, this step backwards has let us be strategic in rebuilding the team.
Several freelancers and interns have boosted progress on product, market intelligence, website and more. We’re now waiting for a new sales assistant to join us under the UK Kickstarter scheme, which subsidises around 90% of the employer costs.
