Regina Honu, CEO and founder of Soronko Solution

Regina graduated from Ashesi University College in 2005 as one of the top software developers in her class with a degree in Computer Science. After graduation, she was hired by a prestigious international bank in Accra as the first and only woman in their IT department. She has been in the technology industry for 8 years and has worked in several positions as Product Manager for Internet Applications at Rancard Solutions, E-business Applications at Zenith Bank and Management and Information Systems Supervisor at Fidelity Bank.

Mrs. Honu represented Ghana on The Apprentice Africa, an African version of the original American Reality TV format, The Apprentice, in 2008. She was interviewed by Microsoft in Seattle, and her wonderful story has been featured in “Lean In”, a webpage committed to offering women the ongoing inspiration and support to help them achieve their goals, by Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook, and “Impatient Optimist” by The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

We’re not quite done with her achievements yet! Regina is also an Aspen Institute New Voices Fellow, a GOOD Fellow and a Global Shaper of the Accra hub of the World Economic Forum.

Regina was unveiled as the 2016 Vlisco Ambassador for Ghana in recognition of the courage she embodied as she fearlessly achieved her dreams despite the obstacles of operating in a male-dominated field and the burden of fighting against social stigmas. 

There’s no stopping Regina! She is inspiring young women to find their voices and pursue their dreams in technology. So it is of no surprise that she founded Tech Needs Girls Ghana, a movement to get girls to code and create technology.
