27: Building the next big startup in Africa - Tayo Bamiduro
I firmly believe that Africa is the next China, and my guest for this episode is Adetayo Bamiduo.
He has managed to raise a significant sum of money to fuel his startup Max, and I can see how it can one day be the Uber of Nigeria. They employ thousands of driver(riders) and they are even working on their own electric motorbike.
In this episode he shares his journey of studying and working in Brazil, Africa, USA, UK and EU. Working in the oil and gas sector, starting a startup at TechStars incubator and bringing it back to Africa.
If you are interested in learning about the tech ecosystem in Africa then this is the episode for you.
