About me

I am Chidi Okoye, a multifaceted Product Manager with 3 years of experience building and scaling digital products for some of the continent’s most promising startups. Based on recency, is AltSchool Africa, an EdTech startup helping young Africans launch profitable careers in tech by teaching them high-in-demand skills. Within 3 months of its launch, and with more than 10,000 student applications processed, AltSchool Africa raised a pre-seed round of $1million. I also function as the Product & Engineering Lead at TalentQL (Techstars ‘21); a global startup that enables start-ups, businesses, and organizations to hire top, vetted tech talent on the continent. To ensure smooth operations, I hired and scaled to a team of 7 in 8 Months. I must mention that this summary does not adequately capture all of my experiences, core competencies and achievements. I am on the lookout for new, exciting challenges where I can employ my diverse set of skills to solve unique problems.
