There are many dreamers, believers, and visionaries who continue to sleep with their dreams and then there are the very few, with a desire, who actually wake up in pursue of their dreams. Regina Agyare is among the very few; a bold and priceless gem the country can boost about in the technology ecosystem. Regina is a young female travelling on a road seldom travelled by a lot of women and using her passion, hard work, and dedication to contribute to the society in quite a unique way.
In 2005, Regina graduated from Ashesi University, and was considered one of the best software developers from the school. In 2012 she founded Soronko Solutions, an organization that has made it their priority to use technology to drive human potential for societal benefits. Regina represented Ghana on the Apprentice Africa program, a Global Shaper representative of the Accra hub at the world economic forum, and a change leader for the Tigo Reach for Change program.
Regina Agyare began her career working for an International bank in Accra, not only as the first but also the only woman in the IT department. She later left to work for a smaller institution creating software before leaving to focus on her own endeavors.
Her company, Soronko Solutions is a Ghana-based software development powehouse that uses technology to drive human potential. In addition, Regina started the Tech Need Girls movement, which teaches young girls how to code and to use technology to solve problems. She is also leading her company to develop an application that will make life comfortable for the disabled in society.
