You’re probably already familiar with Ventures Platform from Kola Aina’s Radar session but you haven’t seen the incubator’s engine room yet. Fola Olatunji-David is that engine room. He has just successfully delivered VP’s first group of incubates and they are already gearing up for their next batch.

With an impressive academic background spanning degrees from UCL, Middlesex & Portsmouth, Fola is no stranger to the technology scene. He has several technology-based roles under his belt and now manages the Accelerator Program at Ventures Platform.

Fola has worked in different sectors in different countries spanning finance, retail and investment banking and education; he is now focused on building a Nigerian technology ecosystem that supports young innovators and entrepreneurs.

Fola is also a partner at Passion Incubator Nigeria and the founding VP Strategy of the Young Innovators of Nigeria. While studying at UCL, he was part of the team responsible for starting UCL’s Base KX, London’s largest co-working facility in Kings Cross. His most recent role was as a Vice President of Business Development at Ventures Garden Group, Lagos, managing portfolios in power, finance and data sectors.

Ladies and gentlemen, Fola will be with us on Thursday, March 2nd from 2pm to 5pm to answer any questions you have about incubation and acceleration in Nigeria and specifically at Ventures Platform.

Applications are also currently open for early stage startups to be a part of Ventures Platform’s next acceleration programme. You can check that out here and prepare any questions you may have about the application/acceptance process.

If you’d like a reminder when the session is about to commence, let us know here.

The vice presidential debate is over and Nigerian Twitter is awash with comments about how smart some of the candidates’ responses were and how some others simply fell hand. 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.
