My Name is Frederick NDEGE, a young Kenyan entrepreneur. I am 26 year of age.
Having gone through alot of hardships during my young age, my hope has been to succeed and emerge the winner in everything I do.
During my early schooling age, poverty could not make me a happy child. I could not enjoy all days present in school. The school uniforms and other scholastic materials was only a dream. But this never stopped me from achieving my dream of getting education. I knew education was my only key to success. Despite all the challenges, I made it through the primary school and joined secondary school from where I performed tremendously well towards achieving my government sponsorship to taking a course in Technology from one of the kenyan university (maseno)
I always thought of becoming an employer more than becoming an employee. This is because of the level of unemployment in the country and many other countries in Africa.
I therefore thought of coming up with the projects that can help me grow economically, grow my family and my friends through providing platform of work towards solving issues in return claim awards for their own efforts.
With that reasons in mind, I came up with a mini audio-visual firm that worked so well. This firm has already completed one project. Within the audio visual firm, being the technology person, I have led to development of the school management software that has already won two tenders worthy USD 3000.
In Swahili we say Twaweza, meaning "yes we can". Through hard work, focus and objectives, I have led the team through good progress and only the sky is our limit. Failure has never been our fear but success has always been the order of the day. Thanks to our perfect planning and thanks to ZIDISHA INC. Our best financial partner.
My business. I head a team of young software developers and our work is divided Into two(2).
(a) Development of school management software and other middle leveled softwares.
We have successfully developed an intelligent integrated school management software (SMS) that has won us two clients who have signed a form of acceptance and five more who are being taken through simulation and basic information on how the software automates the school activities.
My team and I also provide the school Local area network (LAN) that distributively makes available the software to all school's departments to post data to single database. This makes the administration easy to generate reports on daily activities.
Our LAN includes the supply of Computers which supports the minimum requirements of our software, The router and modem to connect the software to the Internet for staff to update database from outside the outside the LAN platform, The Network Switch, Thin Clients for Desktop virtualization to reduce power consumption, increase workspace and reduce the cost of purchase of many cpu's. Many thanks to ncomputing technology and zidisha inc. Funding.
(b) we also apply for audio visual supply and installation of music and video equipments.
I won a new tender in one of the best telecommunication service provider in the country to provide the video screen. I will therefore use the money plus some of savings to buy 8x8 abtus HDMI matrix , 4 49" television screens and other materials.
