Tell us about your childhood and where you grew up?
Grew up in Maryland, US, and Ogbomoso, Nigeria. The duality of growing up in a first-world country and the global south propelled me into having a global perspective from an early age. This carried over to our company now – we’re in 7 countries.
How did you get started as an entrepreneur?
I’ve always tried my hand at business. I sold candy in high school and created a t-shirt company. But I found my success after college. While living in Louisiana and working at General Dynamics IT – I sold customized high-end PCs to companies and government entities in Nigeria.
