Greetings Glocal Citizens!
As many struggle with increasing food prices and potential shortages, many Africans, particularly urban dwellers have been at the whim of markets and failed policies. As a tried and true problem solver, my guest for the week, Luther Lawoyin, is keen on simple solutions. Born and raised in Nigeria, he is an entrepreneur with a passion for social impact. He is leveraging technology to build innovative business models and platforms to serve the next one billion people in Africa's burgeoning digital economy. He is the founder and CEO of Pricepally, a sharing economy e-commerce platform enabling people to shop for food and daily essentials together so they can leverage their collective bargaining power buying in bulk.
Luther has built four revenue-generating businesses from the ground up including passjamb.com.ng (http://passjamb.com.ng/) an exam prep platform and Lucy.ng, a trusted platform supplying B2C and B2B branded merchandise, Lucy has sold over a million products with over a million USD in sales.
Listen in and find out the mechanics of pushing the art and science of problem solving forward on an everyday basis.
