I began the process of establishing a Venture Capital Fund in New York City (Emejuru Capital Investments) between 2014 and 2015. I also raised seed funding for Lowase in 2021, a youth talent management consulting firm, and sponsored the African Truecaller Leadership Fellows 2022 Programme at the LMC School of Practice. Through it all, I learned a lot about the startup ecosystem from the entrepreneurial desire to raise capital to other stakeholders willing to invest. I would like to mentor to young entrepreneurs and its executive directors, helping them create results based outcomes for newly launched innovative product and service lines that can sustainably impact our nations, societies and the world.
