About me
Hi, I'm Bayo. I create things that help African tech entrepreneurs gain investment, and help BAME female entrepreneurs gain the resources they need to build their startups, help women and girls in African countries get the support they need to live their best lives and help NGOs get the support they need to be awesome. My career so far has been awesome even if I do say so myself. I think we all define our version of awesome and where I am now is worth any trials and tribulations that it took to get here (and there were a lot!). Over the past three years, I was quoted by the Prime Minister (twice), I've presented at Harvard and Oxford University's business schools, and been the subject of a TEDx talk. I'm currently working on helping charities connect with people that are pre-disposed to care. I am great at connecting people. I love building communities and helping people find what they need in each other.
Projects
  • Moon Landing: a community for black women by black women
    Moon Landing: a community for black women by black womenWe want to see every black woman in the UK gain the support she needs to be the best version of herself possible. ​To achieve that goal, we are supporting black women that understand the needs of their community to develop programs, workshops, talks and other events that actually help black women achieve their goals in life. This is an opportunity for leaders to find collaborators, friends and partners that share your vision for the future of black womanhood in the UK.
  • #TamponTaxi

  • This is how I got here
    This is how I got hereI formed my first big investor relationship when I was 20 and in the second year of my undergraduate degree. I was running a business, figuring out who I am as an individual away from home, and trying to make sure I didn’t graduate with anything less than a 2:1. My business was my escape from all the stress and drama of living with people I barely knew. It was an experiment in entrepreneurship; a wild goose chase with no clear goals or vision in sight. I can’t say I cared about it. It was proba
