Hello! I’m Moses Kirathe, a Business and Computer Science student at the University of British Columbia. I’m passionate about software engineering, and I would like to share with you WHY. A while back while I was working as a salesman at a small electronics store in Kenya, I saw the potential for growth of the business if it had a better way to manage its books. The pen-and-paper way of recording stock was becoming cumbersome and inefficient as the shop scaled. I developed a stock management software for the store which increased efficiency and led to an increase in sales by 60%. I believe technology is not only a tool for strategic problem solving, but it is also a tool that can be used to empower businesses and individuals all over the world to achieve more.
