Season 5 Episode 2 | Code Wiz: Diversity and Leadership in Franchising

In this episode, guest host Angela Coté talks to Code Wiz CEO, founder, and “nerd in chief” Ruth Agbaji who shares her experience journeying from Nigeria to the U.S. and recently partnering with the Canadian parent company, Clear Summit Group, to amplify the growth and impact of the brand.

Code Wiz helps students gain the programming skills needed to learn how to code, regardless of age, tech proficiency, or personal interests. The brand was established by Ruth in 2017, and provides coding and robotics classes, team-based activities, birthday parties, summer camps, and a Girl Scouts program.

Here, Ruth shares:

  • What fuels her through the challenges that get tossed her way, including being a young, female entrepreneur who’s also a wife and mom of two
  • What led her to making the decision to join forces with parent company Clear Summit Group and Tutor Doctor, and what that means for franchisees in the Code Wiz system
  • Her big vision for herself and Code Wiz, including the bold goal of reaching one billion children across the world.
