Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
As an entrepreneur, Olukayode ran an IT project in his undergraduate varsity days proffering hardware and software solutions to students. He also volunteers for TEDx CapeTown as the contents manager of its simulcast website. TED is a global brand and therefore there is no need to describe its activities. I facilitated several meetings to interact and discuss partnership opportunities with several companies. Overall, I was able to deliver partners for the main event on the 15-16th August 2015 and also procure an animation for the simulcast team. The economic value for the video would have cost about 150 000 ZAR (One hundred and fifty thousand South African Rands) which is equivalent to 11000 Euros.
