About this event

We are proud to host Faiz Bashir on a fireside chat where he will be sharing his entrepreneurship journey and lessons learned at various level and positions.

As a young boy who loves Mathematics, Faiz Bashir was fortunate to have access to the computer in 1993 at a time when computer was very uncommon in Nigeria. His love for Mathematics metamorphosed into love for programming at the young age of 12 years.

While he was still in high school, he came across a simple computer program that accepts inputs of students' scores and computes the sums and averages of the scores and generates the students' report sheets. This program looks like a prototype version of a project by his secondary school to computerize their results. When the project didn't succeed eventually, with his little experience in programming, Faiz was determined to solve the problem which eventually gave birth to FlexiSAF in 2010.

FlexiSAF currently helps over 500 schools to automate their processes with a staff strength of over 90. Coming from a family that values education Faiz believes that education is the greatest asset that anyone can have and is committed to support and create opportunities to out-of-school children and improve the quality of education using technology under the FlexiSAF Foundation platform. He believes that quality education is the ultimate solution to the chronic challenges of Nigeria and the developing countries
