Michael Ocansey, CEO, Kuzima is one of ten entrepreneurs we are featuring during our run up to DEMO Africa, October 26, 2012 in Nairobi, Kenya.

 

Who is your mentor, and what was the last great thing he or she told you and your team?

Mark Davies is the CEO of eSoko and a great user interface, information design and user experience architect. 

He has been my mentor since 2005. I learnt a lot of user experience and information design stuff from him. 

Last week I presented him with a prototype of product and he said "You have really improved. I love the experience. This is clean." 

It was great hearing that from someone who had taught me mostly all I know today as far as design is concerned. I felt encouraged to raise the bar.
