When I first approached Eghosa Omogiui, General Partner at EchoVC, about taking part in the In Conversation With series, he said he likes to keep a low profile.
Anyone who's ever heard him speak knows that he pulls no punches, telling it as it is and often going against the the grain. Some persistence and we have the pleasure of having him as the first interview in this ongoing series talking to those at the heart of African VC and private equity landscape as well as project developers about some of the key issues and challenges of getting a deal done in Sub-Sahara Africa.
A lot of the best entrepreneurs are some of the worst storytellers
In Part 1, Eghosa shares his advice on pitching to himself, the importance of story telling and understanding your market and admitting to knowing what you don't know.
