About Dickson

Born-to-be entrepreneur, Dickson Willie started his first business at the tender age of 13 as a photographer, before getting into IT; building and installing computers. In 2017, Willie launched his own start up, Technishen, a pay-as-you-go, an on-demand IT service provider app.

"Technishen provides on-demand business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) IT support services via a Web and Mobile platform. The platform acts as a decentralised service desk. Users can reach providers within a 10km radius. Technishen verifies and vets all IT technicians so that customers are assured of good service when and where they need it" he explains.

One wouldn’t expect less from a self-proclaimed problem-solver like Willie, who notes; "I love playing with ideas and bringing them to life. I see everything from a vantage point of possibilities and how it can be scaled for a positive impact within wider society. Every single endeavor I enter into is centered on problem-solving which results in a profitable business enterprise with impact."

In his entrepreneurial undertakings with Technishen, Willie cites some of his biggest milestones as his partnership with GIBS MBA Cohort groups, being selected as a finalist for MTN App of the Year Awards in 2019 and having graduated from both YCombinator and the Founders Institute.

Now, as a beneficiary to the Accenture ESD programme, Willie has had the chance to undertake courses with the Henley Business School Africa: "The programme has been really eye-opening for me and my team, it has impacted and will continue to impact the way we do business within the society we operate in." he says.
