Mr. Ugochukwu, an entrepreneur, is the Founder and CEO of Bowmenn, a tech-enabled logistics platform that connects shippers with carriers to move freight and is poised to transform Nigeria’s supply-chain industry.
Ugochukwu had his higher education at the Federal University of Technology Owerri. His technology journey began when he delved into computer programming at the National Universities Commission at the age of 12. The urge for entrepreneurship took over and he started a farm after working for his mum and getting a loan from her, The proceeds from this farm endeavour enabled him, at 21, to purchase his first car which he drove from Enugu to Abuja to launch a taxi service. Throughout life, his passion has gravitated toward transportation.
Growing up, his father, a lawyer and teacher, engaged in trucking as a side hustle. Witnessing his challenges, particularly issues of trust regarding the number of trips drivers undertook daily, ignited his interest and he started working on ways to use technology to solve the challenges truck owners faced with drivers. As the director of CUCTOU Trucking, he gained first-hand insight into how disorganized and inefficient the trucking and supply/chain was. He became convinced that only technology and a shift in driver orientation through training drivers on how to use the company’s App could solve the problem.
