Greetings, Glocal Citizens! In this interview, I am still in Lagos, Nigeria at the offices of Osaretin Oswald Guobadia, co-founder, EVP and COO of DBH Solutions, a building infrastructure and top tier technology solutions provider in West Africa. “Oz" or “Ozzie" as his friends call him, is a business strategy and technology consultant with over 20 years’ experience. His interests also span venture capitalism and entrepreneurship, with significant interests in mentorship and funding startups. He is actively engaged on several boards, providing guidance and oversight for their business operations. He sits on the Alumni Board of Wesley College, USA. He is also a founding director of the Edo Global Foundation, an initiative focused on the development and support of the next generation Edo creatives; and the founder of Edo Development Organization, a non-partisan political and social group whose members collaborate on opportunities to support their respective communities. He is also involved in several other charitable initiatives through the Lagos Nigeria chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity, where he is a founding member.
As a focused contributor to an African economic renaissance, Osaretin is also a burgeoning author. His first book, In Pursuit: Journeys in African Entrepreneurship is due to hit shelves this month.
