It’s Monday, guys! And a great day to introduce the newest guest on our weekly Radar AMA. This Thursday, we’ll be hosting Olamide Bada, Managing Director of Jumia Food Nigeria.
Olamide has an academic background in Law with 3 years experience as a Mergers and Acquisition lawyer at Baker and McKenzie in London and Johannesburg. Her time in Baker and McKenzie working in M&As and business development prepared her for the Operational Development Manager role she took on at Jumia Nigeria upon returning to Lagos.
After managing operations at Jumia Nigeria, Olamide became the Managing Director of Jumia Food Nigeria where she manages a team of 23 members and a fleet of 80 delivery riders across Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt.
During this week’s AMA, Olamide will be answering questions on what it’s been like moving from the corporate world to startup life. She will talk about the everyday realities of overseeing sales, operations and marketing for Jumia Food and what the food delivery business in Nigeria is like.
Join us this Thursday, March 30th at 2pm (GMT +1) to ask Olamide anything you want! You can save the date to your calendar here.
