His tenure at Huawei, starting in 2019, positioned him in key roles, contributing significantly to the company’s global footprint.
“Being part of Huawei’s Global Tech-4-all Open programme in partnership with UNESCO was a humbling experience. Though that wasn’t my initiative, I did lead the connected devices ecosystem for Huawei’s Global Eco-Development department in the UK, this allowed me to contribute to bridging the innovation gap in Africa, Latin America, and Asia, bringing technology to communities that need it the most.” He expressed.

Scott-Emuakpor’s journey is marked by impactful roles, including founding London’s first commercial Virtual Reality (VR) center, Prime 5D Centre, in 2014.

His foray into entrepreneurship with Ovilaj IT Global showcased his commitment to software solutions. In 2019, he founded Prime Teknologies (UK) Ltd, emphasizing Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Virtual Reality technologies. “Wearing various hats at Huawei, from Wearables to AppGallery, and leading in areas like Huawei Cloud, smart devices and technology research, allowed me to contribute to the company’s multifaceted growth, my experiences have not only honed my technical skills but also given me a deep understanding of how technology can impact diverse industries.” Charles expressed, 
Beyond corporate success, Scott-Emuakpor is actively involved in nurturing tech innovation at the grassroots level. He initiated a transformative tech program at his alma mater in Warri, Delta State, introducing smart devices and immersive science VR experiences to enhance the school’s curriculum. Additionally, he established a self-funded scholarship program, ongoing since its inception, empowering students from Primary through Secondary levels. “Education and technology hold the key to a brighter future.

Charles plans to return to Nigeria in February 2024, aligning with his intention to engage in the Innovate Nigeria conference & expo 2024 in Lagos amongst other activities. This move aims to contribute to ongoing efforts to infuse technology into businesses and inspire the next generation, especially women in tech.
