Isaya is the founder and chief executive of SomaApps Technologies which created SomaApp, a mobile app which is revolutionising how scholarships are offered in Africa.
Isaya and his team came up with the idea after seeing how many domestic and international scholarships go unclaimed each year because young people are simply unaware of them. The app enables students to enter their academic qualifications and the SomaApp search engine then matches them with scholarships they qualify for. The app also has a feature which highlights paid opportunities to attend conferences around the world and a recruitment feature which helps employers recruit interns.
More than 2,000 students are currently using SomaApp daily. Since the beta (test) version was launched in February 2017, 450 scholarships totalling more than $850,000 a year have been won by students in Nigeria, Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda.
