Get to know me
Entrepreneurship was inevitable for me, it's my nature to see opportunities & solve problems.
My love for business brought me to the world of finance and investments. Here, I noticed that most 'great' companies that I knew - Facebook, Amazon, Google - have been built by people who are alive today. This was exciting at first, because it means building impactful companies is an attainable goal. However, I started to notice a trend, our great continent Africa has the youngest, fastest growing population but rarely produces companies that serve the world. Why is that? Why are global African companies so rare?
This is a question I'm on a mission to answer. I've been part of a global organization at Morgan Stanley where I started my career, I've worked with founders directly while managing a $5M venture capital fund at Centum, I've studied global businesses during my MBA at Oxford, and now, I'm putting myself in the arena by building Africa's Pocket.

My goal is to build a Global African company. I'm doing this in the finance space because I believe in the power of local capital and the other thing I love as much as Africa is money!
