Back in 2009, Amadou came back to Africa in a quest to locate the best African software developers to kick-start a software outsourcing venture that operated entirely by African citizens but serving the international market.In the course of his journey, Amadou discovered that Africa has enough human capital talent to create a sustainable, innovative and scalable software industry to rival Asia and perhaps even the U.S. However, he found that most IT practitioners lack the desired skill to make them competitive in the local and international market.

As the CEO and Co-Founder of Gebeya, Amadou seeks to address the digital skill gap in Africa by producing highly trained African IT talent through training and increasing job opportunities for African Talent by providing an online IT service workplace for the African business market.
