Olufemi Awoniyi

CEO @ Vidare

I am a Startup Fund Manager at Google, who spent close to a decade advocating for, supporting, and enabling access to capital for African tech startups. In my current role, I oversee the regional execution and program strategy for Google’s Black Founders Fund in Africa. Before joining Google, I ran EFInA’s Innovation Fund as the Fintech Grants Manager, supporting Fintech companies driving financial inclusion in Nigeria.

I am passionate about customer-centric innovation and helping technology startups scale their solutions across different African communities.
