Special Edition - Harry Tomi Davies: Driving Change in Africa
In a special edition of Betting on Yourself, host Michael Redd partnered with his friends at Empower Africa for an exclusive podcast episode – as part of their virtual networking event – to help drive business and growth in Africa.
Guest Harry Tomi Davies (aka TD) is an advisor, author, public speaker, and angel investor.
“Measure life, not by money, but by time, because that’s what life really is. It’s about how you spend the experiences.” – Harry Tomi Davies
TD spoke with Michael about a journey that began over 30 years ago with his first startup, what he sees for business growth in Africa over the next ten years, the times he’s bet on himself, and why it’s so important to measure your success in life by the improvements you make for others.
TD mentors entrepreneurs and invests in startups through TVCLabs, a technology business accelerator based in Lagos. He is also the co-founder of the Lagos Angel Network (LAN), the founding President of the African Business Angel Network (ABAN), a board member at MBO Capital, L4L Nigeria, and other various startups in Africa.
