GBAS GBOS in the 9Ja tech Ecosystem
  1. It appears tech bros are wanted this season and it is not by YC or any of the VC like you would expect. A Twitter user on Monday, put up a post specifically inviting vetted tech bros to register their interest on behalf of her friend who is looking for a 29+ man for a long term project. Reactions have trailed the tweet since it went up as many wonder why the kindest soul would be looking for a tech bro, a yoruba for that matter.
  2. They said your favourite Fintech Unicorn companies is running on Pure vibes and duct tape. Source : I no go lie give you 
  3. One twitter user said Men in tech don’t help one another, He said his fellow guys would rather share links when asked for pointers and mentoring but go the extra mile to deliver support for the ladies. E be things..
