Liberian Techie

Hello, my name is Mwenda Kazadi. I am a young Liberian & Congolese Professional who was raised in the United States. I am passionate about the intersection between Finance, Entrepreneurship, Technology, Real Estate and how skills from those sectors can be applied to Economic and Social development both domestically and in emerging markets (particularly Africa, Middle East, Latin America). The purpose of this blog is to serve as an online multimedia library of all things relating to Liberia, technology, innovation, development, and the African Financial Markets. New postings will be added almost daily. Your input via posts, questions, articles & emails are welcomed :) Click to view my: Twitter Facebook Linkedin. My email is mwendakazadijr@gmail.com
