I have always had the entrepreneurial bug since I can remember. I started my first startup while at University which failed, but it was a great learning experience.

I went on to start and exit businesses after that in the UK. I launched my current startup in the fintech space a few years ago in Nigeria.

I’m very interested in Africa as I believe that there is a lot of untapped potential and remarkable talents in continent right now. I am very interested in supporting early stage startup founders in their starting up phase as I believe getting access to a mentor can add great value at this stage. I am interested in fintech, regtech, proptech, marketplaces and SaaS.

Mentorship motivation

  • I am looking for new investments
  • I want to give back to the startup ecosystem and entrepreneurs coming up
  • I want to make new connections for myself and/or the organization I represent
  • I want to scout for new opportunities in engaging as an advisor or for a board seat

My motivation is support other young startup founders with how to navigate the challenges of starting a new business especially around product management, design, branding, operations, financials, fund raising and growth marketing. I believe that having access to a Mentor at the early stage can help setup a new startup for success, and I will like to be part of that journey.
