Bankole Oluwafemi is Editor-in-Chief of TechCabal.com, Africa’s fastest growing tech blog covering technology, start-ups, mobile and digital media. He has blogged extensively on these and related spaces since 2011. Bankole’s musings about technology in Africa are regularly featured in prestigious publications such as Quartz, Fortune and on TV via his tech segment on TVC. In 2014, Bankole and the TC team hosted the inaugural edition of TechCabal Battlefield, the biggest showcase of technology start-ups in Nigeria vying for a $20,000 prize.
Bankole Oluwafemi started blogging on Techcabal.com in 2013, long before Nigeria’s startup ecosystem became what it is today. Over the years, Techcabal grew from just a blog into a full-fledged digital publication and Bankole earned a reputation as one of the most influential and most connected people in the system. It’s almost impossible for any important story to break or develop in the Lagos startup scene (the hotbed of Nigeria’s tech ecosystem) without him knowing first.
