Episode 21: How a Nigerian started a Scholarship matchmaker App for African Students?

 In podcast

Throughout his career, Abolade Lawal (Bola) worked 9 to 5 as a Business Consultant with companies such as Accenture, Shell, Phillips 66 and CononoPhillips. Because of the structure of corporate America which limits creativity and productivity, Bola didn’t feel like he was giving 100% to his employer. So, he set up to find his passion of helping young Africans.

Today, Bola is the co-founder and CEO of ScholarX, a social impact startup that developed a mobile and web platform to helps African youths access quality education through scholarships and other related opportunities.

In today’s episode, we touched on How and Why Bola started his company, how he built his team, his advice to African entrepreneur, and the broken education system in Africa along with his goals to help young African Students.
