Are you solving a real problem with your startup? Why not apply for our accelerator program at http://venturesplatform.com/accelerator
Hi guys, I’m Fola Olatunji-David, tech enthusiast and general lover of all things startups!
I manage the accelerator (formerly incubator) program at Ventures Platform Abuja, where we support innovative new businesses solving some of Africa’s biggest challenges.
Started my career working in core tech roles, first in infrastructure, then later in web technologies, but I have over the last 5 years transitioned into more business facing roles. I have carried out technology related work in several countries in different sectors including finance, power, retail and investment banking and education, but I am now focused on building a Nigerian eco system that supports young innovators and entrepreneurs.
In Nigeria, I have worked/work with Stanbic IBTC, CardinalStone Partners, Venture Garden Group (VGG), SET IT, Passion Incubator and of course, Ventures Platform.
Away from work, I like football - in the past I played semi-pro football, and still play 2/3 times a week. I am also the current FIFA and chess champion at VP (argue with yourselves VP team).
Very excited to be here discussing startups, I’d be happy to take your questions from 2pm today! Lets go!
