With nearly two decades of experience in the creative and technology sectors, Ojoma Ochai is recognized as a trailblazer, driving innovative solutions and elevating Africa’s creative landscape.
Speaking about the appointment, Funke Opeke, Chairperson of the CcHUB Board says Ojoma’s proven track record and strategic leadership are exactly what the hub needs to continue building on its mission of contributing to African prosperity through innovation.
