Iyinoluwa Samuel Aboyeji is a Nigerian entrepreneur. He is a co-founder of Andela, and was the former managing director of Flutterwave. Up until October 2018, Iyinoluwa Aboyeji was the CEO of Flutterwave, one of the most integral payment companies in Nigeria. He resigned his role to focus on his family and play a role in influencing the policies that shape Nigeria’s tech ecosystem. Before he co-founded Flutterwave, Iyin helped build Andela into one of the biggest talent companies for software developers in Africa.
In less than 10 years, in Flutterwave and Andela, Iyin has helped build two of the most important companies in the Nigerian ecosystem. He has proved his dexterity as an entrepreneur, now he is taking on the challenge of governance and politics because there’s the need to “fight for a new Nigeria” and help lift people out of poverty and into the middle class. Iyin’s goal now will involve interacting with political figures, using his voice and influence as an ecosystem leader to shape the policies that will either make or break the future of Nigerian technology.
