Naomi Jordan Cook and W.E. Da’Cruz are modern-day icons for black women in technology. Cook, who is a strong force in both her city and the digital sphere, specializes in implementing digital technologies and eCommerce systems; while Da’Cruz is a Ghanaian-American economic strategist in global entrepreneurship who uses technology to address poverty and unemployment. They are both founders and co-owners of The Virtual Global Consultant (VGC) Group, a global company that designs and develops eCommerce systems that help generate revenue online for people, companies and organizations. Through VGC, they are responsible for helping to generate millions of dollars a year in at-will donations and business sales for their clients, with a special focus on faith-based organizations and African-based companies.
As thought leaders in their field, Cook and Da’Cruz have been invited to speak at high level events, such as the US-Africa Business Summit (Maputo, Mozambique), World Export Development Forum (Addis Ababa, Ethiopia), Africa Fintech Summit 2019 (Addis Ababa, Ethiopia), and DHL eCommerce Conference (Accra, Ghana). They developed the Digital Futures Fellowship Program, which connects market research students to African businesses to help them compete in the global market, and Aftown Mall, an eCommerce ecosystem that serves as a pioneering digital incubator to help African-based companies become self-sufficient online. Through these projects, their goal is to drive economic development for the continent of Africa and bridge the diaspora through technology.
