Iyinoluwa “E” Aboyeji is a Nigerian entrepreneur who has built two of Africa’s fastest-growing tech startups and took early retirement leave by age 28. E co-founded Andela, now a leader connecting Africa’s top software developers with tech companies from the U.S. and around the world, having originally secured $24 million in funding from Mark Zuckerberg’s foundation.
