I recently provided some mentoring a team of entrepreneurs from MEST Africa (a Pan-African entrepreneurial training program, seed fund, tech incubator and hub).

I was thrilled to receive this testimonial from the team in my inbox:

“We had the privilege of working with Ayaan, who served as an advisor to our team Qetela during our company build project at Meltwater school of entrepreneurship and technology. Ayaan is incredibly resourceful and provided the team with current and relevant insights into the digital HR space. His seasoned experience and understanding of the industry helped the team navigate as we built our product. Ayaan is a brilliant team player, very responsive enthused to offer assistance at a moments notice.”

Team Qetela have worked on a web based prototype that tackles the major challenge of employee disengagement in Sub-Saharan Africa, which some estimates suggest is higher than 80%, incorporating gamification to boost employee engagement.

Thanks for your comments guys, it’s been a pleasure to share my thoughts with you and I wish you all the success as you continue your journey.
