EP 13 // Turning Your Passion Into Profit While Building a Family with Eyram Tawia
Akua is excited to share this educational and entertaining interview. In this episode of the Open Door Conversations Podcast, she brings on Eyram Tawia. He is the CEO of Leti Arts, a globally successful game developing company focused on preserving African culture in modern forms that can stand the test of time. Eyram is passionate about his work, his family, and the legacy he leaves for his children and millions more on the continent of Africa.
Today Eyram shares his origin story, about life as an entrepreneur through a pandemic, and a glimpse of what the future holds for Leti Arts. This company is not just creating a profitable video game.
