Fireside chat with John Waiboichi CEO, Virtual City
John is the CEO at Virtual City a Mobility Solutions Company specializing in Supply Chain Automation, Knowledge Management and Interactive Solutions. He has over 10 years of experience in the technology industry launching VirtualSat and Virtual Mobile. VirtualSat is an Internet Service Provider and IP Solutions Systems Integration Company and Virtual Mobile is a Mobile Products Distribution and Cashless Transaction Services Company. He holds a Bsc. in Electrical Engineering from Michigan State University and is passionate about Entrepreneurship, New Technologies and Management Practices.
Last year in September, Virtual City won the Nokia Innovation Challenge Award – beating companies from 54 different countries to emerge the best – effectively banking $1M (equivalent of Ksh 80 Million). John Waibochi attributed the success to dedicated service borne of innovation.
“We have developed an application that enables distributors and retailers to sell in the market using the Nokia mobile phones for their sales, deliveries and taking orders and we have gone further to help them be able to collect their cash,” said Mr. Waibochi.
On Thursday the 24th of March 2011 from 6pm – 7.30pm, Nokia and the iHub are proud to host John for our March Fireside chat. Please RSVP here.
