No singular company has been more influential to the development of tech talent in Nigeria than Andela, for which Jeremy is co-founder and CEO. Andela takes young Nigerians who necessarily do not have software programming skills but have a strong interest in learning, trains them, and builds them up into world-class developers. For its work in the Nigerian ecosystem (and now across Africa), Andela has received international recognition, including a $24 million investment from Mark Zuckerberg. Many of the rockstar developers Nigeria has produced recently have passed through Andela. It has inspired remarkable success stories, and lifted hundreds of young people out of poverty. At Andela, Jeremy calls the shots and over the years, he has appeared in the White House and before the US Congress.
