I have been fortunate enough to acquire more than 20 years of work experience across 7 industries, ranging from early-stage to early growth startups, mature businesses as well as large corporations. I have helped startups find their market fit as well as scale-up. In my career, I have worn many hats including sales, customer services, marketing, business development, team leader, operations management, strategist, managing director, and founder. My passion lies in building African economies through environmentally and socially conscious entrepreneurship so that Africans can be self-dependent.
