Hardly does a week go by without some tech startup announcing a 6-7 figure raised seed round, and it has long been concluded that tech is the new oil. As a writer, you might have considered a career switch or wondered how you can get your cut of this tech boom. It would please you to know that you don’t have to learn coding at your old age, nor do you have to switch careers before you can get your share of the tech boom! With your writing skills and leveraging new tech trends, you too can become a writing bro (that’s our version of tech bro)!
Did I hear you ask how? Easy. The first step is to attend the February StartCulture session themed: Tech And Money: New Tech Trends and How Writers Can Leverage Them to Earn More.
During the session, you will learn from Oyindamola Olofinlua and Habeeb Ajijola, two experienced facilitators who have successfully leveraged on tech and their writing skills to multiply their income.
If you are curious about our facilitators’ pedigree, let their profiles convince you.
