I believe i have a wealth of financial experience and expertise after 25 years in the financial services industry and am ready to offer that to aspiring startups who can benefit from this. I setup the 1st bank led venture fund in Africa before leading the largest bank in Africa into venture funding. Prior to this i spent several years in banking and am a Chartered accountant and CFA charter holder. Mentoring allows me to offer this experience and expertise to the people that need it the most. I am now based in the Netherlands and keen to see where I can best assist.

Mentorship motivation

  • I want to scout for new opportunities in engaging as an advisor or for a board seat

I believe innovation will move my home continent forward and not politicians. But the entrepreneurial journey is hard and entrepreneurs don’t necessarily have the requisite skills to understand how to manage the financial side of the business including the business forecasts and the capital raising environment. This is where I believe I am well placed to assist
