Disrupt TV has launched on YouTube with a new show called StartUp Diaries, which features Gambian founders and their startup stories. Each episode has an in-depth interview with a Founder, sharing their journey and strategies. StartUp Diaries is aimed at viewers in The Gambia and the diaspora around the world.
The series is sponsored by PointClick Technologies, which is a cloud management company operating across USA, Africa, Europe and Asia, with a base in The Gambia for the past four years. Disrupt TV is part of The Disruptive Lab, The Gambia’s first tech hub and co-working space, which is fully funded by PointClick Technologies.
Series producer and CEO of PointClick Technologies Malik Khan says:
“Building a strong entrepreneurial ecosystem requires sharing and togetherness. That’s why we’ve launched Disrupt TV. Our first show, StartUp Diaries, is an exciting initiative for us, and we want it to inspire up-and-coming entrepreneurs in both The Gambia and the diaspora. Each of the featured Founders gives a lot of insight into the challenges and opportunities that Gambian organizations face. We hope that by starting this conversation, it encourages more startups in the country. PointClick Technologies is proud to be the sponsor of Series 1.”
PointClick Technologies is also marking another big milestone this year. The global company is celebrating 15 years in business. Mr Khan explains:
“Back in 2006, no one was really thinking about Cloud services. I was providing IT services – a common starting point for many of today’s Cloud providers. I’d go into businesses and fix desktops, repair servers and assist with IT issues. But I realized that I could do more, and the idea for PointClick Technologies was born. I built the company from the ground up, and we now manage IT infrastructure, deliver managed IT services and are a Microsoft partner for several companies and brands worldwide. We have bases in the United States, Spain, India, and The Gambia. We’re incredibly grateful to our clients and our team as we prepare to celebrate our 15th anniversary.”
