My name is Fikunayomi Aluko, a 2021 Chevening Scholar from Nigeria.
As an Innovation Technology Leader with a strong background in software development, cybersecurity, and cloud technologies, I play at the intersection of technology, product innovation, venture funding and digital transformation. In my previous role, I led the innovation and investments unit at Consulting firm, where I built about 8 products that address pressing needs for over 140,0000 SME/Startups owners.
For about a decade now, I have worked with public and private sectors, pioneered and drove innovation technologies related programs, while forging strategic partnerships with key stakeholders within the technology ecosystem.
Beyond technology, I engaged in human capital development initiatives. In 2017, I founded Growthassset, a youth-focused empowerment social enterprise that has leveraged digital technology to impact over 10,000 individuals and executed 50 capacity development programmes.
I enjoy teaching, adventure, sightseeing, meeting new people, I had my first degree in Computer Engineering and Master’s Degree in Systems Engineering. I am open to collaborating on venture funding, start-up, product management and digital transformation.
