Nnajiugo Nwosu, or “Jude”, is the Chief Information Officer of Chamco Projects. This company is a privately owned process engineering, consulting, and project management company. Jude considers himself a very tech savvy and versatile entrepreneur and he owes his success to all of his hard work and dedication.
Jude has always had big dreams and even bigger ideas about what he wanted to become. He always knew that he would be successful, the question wasn’t “if” it was “when”. Although starting off he had no extra money to put into his success, so he had to rely solely on his education, his ambitions, and his relentless support from his mother. Jude’s late mother had been a strong role model his entire life, and he dedicates everything he does to her.
He is even an avid sports enthusiast, always tuning in to every USC Trojan football game, no matter when or where. He also watches basketball and soccer often in his free time, with his favorite soccer team being Arsenal from the British Premier League.
Jude’s biggest concern is helping companies and even governments improve their business and grow to their technological potential. All while cutting overhead costs and increasing overall productivity.
In the last few months there has been an intense increase of cryptocurrency usage, so businesses have been trying to find new and improved ways to keep up with this uptake. Chamco Projects has made impressive headways in adopting these changes, while gaining entrance in different countries around Africa.
“We’re about to enter a new era whereby multinational companies and governments seek to incorporate blockchain built solutions into everything from payment processing through to data management.” Nnajiugo Nwosu said when speaking about his company’s ambitions.
The blockchain era continuously evolves into a multibillion-dollar industry, and Chamco Projects is well positioned to play a key role in Africa on this nascent technology. They are looking to figure out solutions that will make it so that users can connect to token-based systems. This way they can trade currencies and manage their money all through the blockchain industry. This is currently being explored thoroughly, as many businesses try to figure out all of the benefits to blockchain.
“It’s still early days for crypto within the corporate space, but it’s increasingly important to be thinking about technological solutions built on the blockchain. This is especially true since the adoption of cryptocurrencies in regions such as Africa is rising fast,” Nnajiugo Nwosu mentioned.
Nnajiugo Nwosu confirmed, back in September, that Chamco Projects is in advanced negotiations with a number of new partnerships in some African countries, and they will be pursuing artificial intelligence that will be powered by cloud solutions with several private companies and governments.
Through channel partnerships that will optimize their revenue in the long run, Chamco Projects has been working with some other companies in Africa. And this is in addition to working with some regional governments, through partnerships. Chamco Projects is provisioning solutions that will hopefully, in the end, substantially reduce inefficiencies and waste within the sectors of some of these African countries.
Nnajiugo Nwosu is not just empowering for his success in the world of technology entrepreneurship. He is quite the family man as well, with a loving wife and three beautiful children all of whom supported him greatly through the weight loss journey he went through just a few years ago, while pushing approximately 250 lbs. He was told by multiple doctors that he was on the verge of type 2 diabetes and that he needed to lose weight quickly and healthily in order to continue his life as he knows it. This only made Jude motivated to get this part of his life together as he has with the other parts of his life.
“My health reached a point where I felt constantly sluggish. Despite everything else in my life seeming great, I was on a fast track to diabetes, and I lacked self-belief. I was indecisive and at my lowest ebb. I knew something had to change – and so did my doctor who gave me the wake-up call I needed to make radical changes in my diet and create an exercise plan that worked.” Nnajiugo Nwosu said when talking about his journey.
He also spoke to multiple sources and gave advice on how he started, worked through, and continues his journey still to this day. Which in turn has helped many other people get into shape.
“Your weight loss journey is filled with ups and downs so find ways to stay on track. For me, it was listening to the motivational entertainer Steve Harvey, and working out to the powerful lyrics of the late Tupac Shakur.” Nnajiugo Nwosu said. This became one of his most well-known advice, as it gave other people motivation to find what would push them to keep going.
“Happiness is a choice and I choose to live my life without fear and only positivity. Know that within you is the confidence you can do anything, and you’re destined for greatness, whatever the obstacles.” Nnajiugo Nwosu said, also mentioning that this is the mindset that kept him going through the ups and downs of working out, eating healthy, and eventual weight loss.
He also mentioned that his routine was intense, more intense than might have been expected for someone of his size to start with so quickly. “The key to losing weight and getting in shape is having a consistent, but powerful routine that you enjoy and can stick to. Mine was pretty intense. I got up at 4am each Monday to Friday and ran 1.5 miles to the gym. There, I’d perform a series of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) exercises for 45 minutes before I ran back. On Saturdays, I’d go for a 5-mile run and take Sundays off to recover. There’s a wealth of amazing instructors out there online, so take advantage of what you can do virtually. Fitness trainers Scott “Burnhard” Bernard and Chris Heria were a great support to me virtually, too.”
Jude also makes it very clear that, as important as success in your own life may be, giving back to the community is just as, if not more, important. “I strive to volunteer my time,” Nnajiugo Nwosu said, when asked about this belief. Although he may not volunteer like others, by picking up trash or working at the soup kitchen on weekends, he is making an impact with his technological advancements.
“We’re in the process of doing work with some governments in Africa on issues that have to do with renewable energy, blockchain and information technology, building applications, and using artificial intelligence.” Nnajiugo Nwosu has also stated.
Even though his top project is of course Chamco, he also has his own entrepreneurial side projects that he works on. He co-owns the companies, Digitus Inc and Digitus Health, which are both registered U.S. and California state government contracting companies.
“We are working assiduously on the state level, and were recently invited to the state capital of Sacramento to negotiate on delivery of Health Care Services to patients in the area.” Nnajiugo Nwosu continued on.
He has even said that he worked with the Alumni at USC (University of Southern California), specifically at the Lloyd Greif Centre for Entrepreneurial Studies, helping aspiring entrepreneurs whenever he could. Doing so, according to him provides a sense of fulfillment that he otherwise lacks in his life.
“I go back and mentor students on expectations, being in the tech space and trying to be an entrepreneur.” Nnajiugo Nwosu says “I teach them how to form teams, build trust and how to navigate the process.”
Nnajiugo Nwosu has also been working on some forms of AI (artificial intelligence). “We’re at a crucial turning point where technology in healthcare becomes a game-changer for the whole patient experience,” says Nnajiugo Nwosu. He also has predicted that AI is going to be a game changer in the near future, and that he wanted to be at the forefront of this change.
Another step in the long game is virtual reality, which Chamco also wants to be a part of furthering. “Look at what’s happening right now with blockchain for example. Digital record keeping and ledgers for transactions will become more transparent. Virtual reality for demonstrating procedures and helping to train medical professionals is coming. Patients are also getting more personalization, with apps that provide them with biometric readings and regular health updates.” Nnajiugo Nwosu said.
