He was named a CNN Hero in 2010 which gave him international recognition. In 2013 he co-founded Greenwize Energy Limited, an enterprise that designs and implements renewable energy solutions.

The Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) graduate will speak alongside industry leaders including, Allen Blue who is the co-founder of LinkedIn and former Italian president Matteo Renzi. According to an email sent to Venture Burn South Africa, the forum, known as Misk Global Forum, is set to take place on November 15-16th.

The Misk Global Forum is now in its second year. The forum will cover four main themes which focus on living, learning, working and contributing. The forum will also discuss how to navigate the opportunities and challenges presented by the Fourth Industrial Revolution, which is the technological revolution. The speaking engagement is set to propell Wadongo’s career even further. Evans continues being an inspiration to young people in technology and innovation. The youth can achieve so much with effort and focus.
