Neku Atawodi is breaking boundaries and we love it
Beautiful, young, courageous and diverse are the words that describe Neku Atawodi.
She is the first black female professional polo player to compete at international level and play for brands in over 22 cities around the world. She partnered with Super Sports to bring polo to television across Africa.
Asides being a distinguished sportswoman, she is the founder of Malaik, Africa’s first impact focused equity crowd funding portal which connects investors interested in impact investment opportunities and entrepreneurs raising equity finance. Malaik closed its first deal of $300,000 within two months of launching.
Recently named among the Forbes 30 under 30 most Africa’s most promising entrepreneur, she is a World Economic Forum global shaper, an associate fellow of the royal commonwealth society and a Clinton global initiative lead mentor.
She is the General manager of Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology in Nigeria.
Neku maybe young but she isn’t naive especially in business. She is breaking boundaries and defying all odds.
