Ah, I couldn’t resist making a horse pun. You see, when Uneku Saliu-Atawodi isn’t busy being the founder of Malaik, an “impact-focused approach to equity crowdfunding”, or being an Associate Fellow of the Royal Commonwealth Society, a World Economic Forum Global Shaper, and a Clinton Global Initiative Lead Mentor, she’s a professional polo player (one of the few black, female ones in the world).

Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology has opened their first incubator in Nigeria (like we said they would a few months ago), and Neku’s their first hire. She’s taking on the position of General Manager and keep an eye on all the moving parts of the Incubator as it matures – incubator operations and strategy, startup support, stakeholder engagement, business development and fundraising efforts for MEST.

Anticipation ahead of the elections is building just as is excitement around the potential usefulness of blockchain technology across various fields. Sadly, some of us may not even get the chance to cast a vote next year.

As far as I can recall, I’ve owned seven phones in the last nine years, four of which forcefully ended up with people who needed them more than I did. Out of the remaining three, I recall handing one down to a younger sibling and disposing another in a waste bag during spring cleaning. I haven’t given much thought to where my current phone will end up when it no longer serves its purpose. Until now.
