As a global Nigerian and lifetime Afro-optimist, I am deeply committed to coaching, mentoring, developing, and empowering the next generation of African leaders (especially women), entrepreneurs, and changemakers to drive positive social change and economic development across Africa.

Via my pan-African strategic advisory firm ZER Consulting Africa, I dedicate myself both personally and professionally to fostering sustainable growth in startups, scale-ups, and social enterprises via corporate governance, portfolio management, and thought leadership.

Mentorship motivation

  • I want to give back to the startup ecosystem and entrepreneurs coming up
  • I want to scout for new opportunities in engaging as an advisor or for a board seat

After a decade in human capital consulting and another decade in insurance, I left the corporate world, pivoting into addressing some of the more fundamental issues facing our continent.
