On Powering Education with Technology - A NEW Conversation with Ismail Eleburuike
Play • 34 min

In this episode I will be welcoming back a previous guest of Narratives of Purpose to hear more about this Ed Tech entrepreneur's journey since our initial NOP conversation back in 2022.

Ismail Eleburuike is the founder of SchoolTry, the leading provider of efficient education application technology in various African countries. We spoke in April 2022, and before you tune into today’s episode, I highly encourage you to listen back to the conversation from Episode 31 and be reminded of Ismail's fascinating background - especially how he started SchoolTry in 2019.

Listen to today's episode to hear how SchoolTry has evolved since our last conversation. Ismail also shares his strategies for overcoming challenges as well as his vision to shape the Ed Tech ecosystem on the African continent.
