Just a year ago, Oyin Solebo’s Movemeback, a company she co-founded with Charles Sekwalor, became a Google-funded company. Today she achieves even more feats.
Oyin Solebo has been appointed as the Managing Director at ARM Labs Lagos Techstars Accelerator, a program focused on supporting early-stage fintech and proptech companies based in Africa.
Solebo will enhance the firm’s search for promising startups and founders, boosting gender equality, and bringing together a resourceful network of partners to help ensure the success of these businesses, as they become global brands.
The entrepreneurial leader, who has a background in investment management, holds an Executive MBA with distinction from the London Business School and an Economics degree from the London School of Economics. The platform which she co-founded is recognised by the London Stock Exchange and connects professionals globally to opportunities in Africa.
Also, Solebo speaks on topics such as entrepreneurship, social impact, diaspora engagement and the future of work to a global audience, with a focus on Africa. She has over 15 years of experience in strategic leadership, investment, and human capital development.
Commenting on the appointment, Jumoke Ogundare, Group CEO ARM Holding Company, said: “Oyin Solebo joining ARM Labs Lagos Techstars Accelerator Program as Managing Director is in keeping with our aim of rapidly and exponentially boosting the growth of African entrepreneurs.
We are confident that her presence on the team will foster the rapid innovation we support in the African startup ecosystem through this programme. Being a co-founder herself, she contributes a wealth of knowledge and experience to ensure that the startups benefit from this programme’s expertise to scale their businesses creatively and effectively.”
