She is a BSc Economics graduate of The University of Nottingham, University of Florida MSc scholar, and an ex-Great Britain javelin thrower. 

 

After gaining work experience in investment banking, Kike then worked in Business Development at a fast-growing financial technology for two years because she realised ‘tech is the future’. Her motivation for starting BYP Network was to “change the Black narrative” and the platform has since grown to over 150,000 members and over 1000 corporate clients including Facebook, Burberry and Goldman Sachs.

 

BYP members have been upskilled through mentorship, thought-leadership events and industry specific insight along with an enhanced network.

Kike’s proudest moments include the annual BYP Network Leadership Conference attended by thousands of Black professionals as well as the BYP $1m crowdfund that saw 1200 community investors. 

 

Kike is a Forbes 30 under 30, Maserati Top 100 Most Innovative Founders and a Computer Weekly UK Top 10 woman in Technology.

 

She is on the board of the London Chambers of Commerce Black Business Association, Getting on Boards and is a London Tech Ambassador.

 

Kike is a proud wife and mother to her daughter, Yetunde,  who was named after her mum that passed away 7 months before her birth.
