Today our man crush is Evans Akanno, a smart and intelligent entrepreneur who is making great impact within the Nigerian tech space and constantly using every available opportunity to improve personally.
Evans Akanno is the gounder and CEO of Cregital, a creative and digital agency that nurtures talents and helps brands make smart impressions.
Today, Cregital is one of the most thriving startups in Nigeria. Within the space of three (3) years, Evans and his team have been able to make noteworthy achievements in the tech and creative space in Nigeria. As a result, he won the 2016 winner of the Future Awards Young Creative Professional.
He started his career with an internship at the Nigerian Petroleum Exchange ( NNPC – NipeX) in 2008. The design bug caught him in 2010 and he ventured into graphics as a freelance designer.
He did that for two years and finally landed his first real job as a brand and social media strategist with Jumia Nigeria. He really enjoyed combining his love for design with his writing abilities. In 2013, he moved to Konga. com as a Creative Strategist .
The following year, he set up Zegist.com which is now a lifestyle community. The response was overwhelmingly positive and in 2015, the young Evans took a bold step of leaving a paid employment to set up Cregital Agency on April 20, 2015.
He is a strong and we’ll determined entrepreneur who never gave up even when the chips were down, he aimed at achieving his goals, hence his success story.
This young and talented entrepreneur recently got the young tech achiever of the year, at the Nigeria Technology Award.
