Tucked away in Port Harcourt, Nigeria, a burgeoning software powerhouse is setting the pace for startups and businesses eager to embrace the digital revolution. Dafe Software LTD, the brainchild of Jefferson Orakpoyovwuru and Emmanuel Okoh, is helping companies pivot to digital with breathtaking efficiency.
These trailblazing entrepreneurs have been instrumental in facilitating companies to focus on pitching ideas and wooing investors, while they, with their team, handle the complexities of turning these ideas into Minimum Viable Products (MVPs).
“As software engineers, we thrive on turning concepts into functional realities. It’s our passion,” Jefferson Orakpoyovwuru, co-founder and senior software engineer, commented. “We’re not just building software; we’re helping our clients build their futures.”
Dafe Software, since its inception in 2019, has grown into a robust team of Product Designers, Software Engineers, Cloud Engineers, and Scrum Masters, all working diligently to create custom software solutions for businesses of all sizes. Their reputation for delivering projects in a timely fashion, thanks to their adoption of the Agile methodology, has earned them an enviable standing in the tech industry.
Emmanuel Okoh, the co-founder and senior software engineer, further emphasised their mission: “Our aim is to help businesses digitise and automate their processes, creating seamless systems that add value and increase their revenue.”
Dafe Software’s portfolio is impressive. A noteworthy achievement is the exam assessment mobile application developed for the Government of Canada, intended for international registered nurses. Equally significant is the creation of 9jaedugames, a fun and educational app for teenage kids in secondary school. Both projects showcase Dafe’s capability to deliver unique, effective digital solutions within stringent timeframes.
In line with their entrepreneurial spirit, Dafe’s data Software capabilities is already focused on future endeavours. “We’re currently working on projects in video conferencing and communications, as well as educational platforms for school management and result checking for a new generation polytechnic,” Jefferson revealed.
When asked about the challenges encountered, Jefferson was frank about the difficulties they faced initially. “A journey of passion over financial gains is always challenging, especially when that has to be a norm for years before having major breaks.” However, he quickly pointed out that these challenges only fuelled their commitment to their mission.
Jefferson’s advice to aspiring professionals in the field is resolute: “Consistency is key. Programming should be a full-time career and not a hobby.” His personal motto, “Work hard and play later. Stay hungry and focused”, clearly embodies the drive that has fuelled Dafe Software’s success.
