I put my energy into Source Institute, which designs peer-to-peer educational programmes for fast-changing, multi-disciplinary topics. We've built some useful educational programs using The Source Thesis -- covering technology in Sub-Saharan Africa and Artificial Intelligence.

I've also co-founded The Africa Prize For Engineering Innovation, Founder Centric, and Leancamp.
