My name is Folorunso Aliu. I have been in the tech space for over two decades . I worked on some of the earliest pioneering ICT infrastructural build in Nigeria working with one of the leading ICT pioneer companies in Nigeria. Over the years, I have been involved in mentoring and advising young tech entrepreneurs to help avoid some of the predictable pitfalls so they can focus on the core of their business and growth.
I am on the board of one of Nigeria’s fintech Unicorns and an accelerator in Northern Nigeria. In addition, I have written a book to help young entrepreneurs and other young Nigerians. I am a firm believer in the creative abilities of young entrepreneurs as a way to build a nation sustainably. I therefore seek opportunities to mentor the next generation of nation builders through tech entrepreneurship.
I mentor because I believe in the power of creativity in young people to make a difference and create the future I wish to live in – enlightened self-interest.
