What, in your opinion, is a huge myth about entrepreneurship?

The biggest myth is that you need a lot of money to get started. Now that I look back, we did not need that much capital to get started.

List the top 3 resources you use to manage your business?

I watch a lot of TED talks. I have listened to power talks from a lot of people on TED and it’s always inspirational. Family and friends have also been really instrumental in supporting me, especially when things get lonely.

What qualities have helped you succeed thus far?

Perseverance and prayer. I have felt like giving up so many times. But I always push to the next point and before we know it, we hit a milestone.

What’s the one piece of advice you’d give to a young woman who wants to be the next successful entrepreneur?

Be passionate. Everything starts with loving what you are doing. It’s the one thing that will keep you going when you want to give up. I love technology and every day I feel that I can create something new with tech. It drives me. Our aim is to continue to innovate within the ICT in the health sector.”
