Big Life Wins:
As part of my entrepreneurial experience, I co-founded and built LiveKampus.com, an innovative service for university students looking to live off-campus. Livekampus provides a simple cloud-based, housing intel app for schools in Africa, with Nigeria as the pilot. My team of two and I have since gone on to gather over 2000 bed spaces, 1000 registered users, and some amount of booking requests on the platform. As proof of concept, we were part of the 1000 companies selected out of the 50000 companies that registered for the 2017 Tony Elumelu Foundation Entrepreneurial program, after which we received a $5000 grant to help scale the business.
Post MBA Goal:
I have a passion for technological innovations and how they can be used to create enabling environments for indigenous entrepreneurs and local products to solve problems for Africa’s ecosystem, which ties into my long-term plan to return to Nigeria and create this reality.
