Blessing Oyeleye is part of a group of emerging tech founders in “Silicon Africa”. She is the CEO/Co-Founder of Makers Crew, a startup poised to be the leading commerce platform in Nigeria by bringing the latest trend and modern shopping experience to brand-conscious urban African women. With a background in Engineering/Project Management and extensive industrial experiences with DuPont, PepsiCo, HP & Cargill. When asked ‘why Africa’, her response has always been why not? The African consumer has been underestimated, underserved and underserviced. With six of the fastest growing economies in the world located in the continent, it is time to focus on the opportunities that exist there. Born and raised in Nigeria, she is pushing past the media’s depiction of Africa to expose the rise of the African consumer.
