Dotun Olowoporoku-

Dotun Olowoporoku is the Managing Partner at Starta, a platform that makes it easier to build, discover and track high growth businesses in Africa. He is the host of Building the Future podcast which chronicles African growth narrative through one-on-one conversation with people that are using entrepreneurship, technology, innovation, and civic leadership to shape the African future.

Prior to Starta, Dotun founded meals.co.uk an on-demand food delivery platform in the UK. He was responsible for investing in early stage startups in Africa via Potential.VC, a UK-based angel syndicate fund. He was the recipient of 2014 Southwest England Breakthrough Business Prize, and has been identified as one of the 42 under 42 most influential business person in Southwest England. Dotun has a PhD in environmental management and worked as a Post-doc Research Fellow, but found it more interesting to be a startup pirate than join the academic navy.
