What does your company do?

Our company is dedicated to empowering aspiring female tech professionals by offering practical training and real-world opportunities in various tech careers. We provide comprehensive services in software development, web development, data analytics, digital marketing, UI/UX design, IT support, cybersecurity, and quality assurance testing. Through partnerships with startups, we offer hands-on experience and mentorship, bridging the gap between traditional education and the evolving demands of the tech industry.

What is your biggest success?

Our greatest achievement has been pinpointing a crucial need among startups: the underutilization of tech resources for enhancing decision-making, expanding customer reach, and safeguarding data. By leveraging my experience in venture capital, we identified this oversight and introduced Nubytech's services to several startups. The overwhelming enthusiasm from these startups to engage with us underscores the significance and effectiveness of our solution in addressing a prevalent gap in the startup landscape.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

Our most significant obstacle has been acquiring essential resources to kickstart our operations efficiently, including access to eight high-quality laptops to equip our team members with the necessary hardware for efficient work. To commence effectively, we also require subscriptions to critical software tools such as Slack for communication, GitHub for version control, Figma for design collaboration, PowerBI for data visualization, Google Analytics for digital marketing insights, remote desktop software for IT support, VPN for cybersecurity, and Jira for project management and quality assurance. Overcoming this hurdle is pivotal for ensuring a seamless launch and operational effectiveness, enabling us to deliver value to our clients while pursuing our objectives diligently.
