Keynote Speaker: Wemimo Abbey

Wemimo’s journey from the streets of Lagos to the forefront of innovation is nothing short of remarkable. Faced with the challenge of accessing credit without a score, Wemimo and his Co-Founder embarked on a mission to revolutionize the rental industry. Their brainchild, Esusu, has redefined the way renters build credit, offering property management analytics and financial stability through rental assistance. With a recent valuation of $1 billion, Esusu stands as a beacon of innovation in the housing sector.

But Wemimo’s innovation extends beyond Esusu. His commitment to social impact has led to the founding of Clean Water for Everyone, providing clean water access to over 250,000 people across six countries. Additionally, his work in data analytics and mergers and acquisitions has left an indelible mark on the industry.

Keynote Speaker: Jonah Sachs

Jonah is not just an entrepreneur or a social change advocate—he’s a pioneer in the art of storytelling for impact. As the co-founder of Free Range Studios, Jonah spearheaded some of the world’s most groundbreaking digital social change campaigns.

In 2007, Jonah helped launch “The Story of Stuff,” a campaign that captivated audiences worldwide, amassing over 60 million views and sparking crucial conversations about the environmental and social impact of consumer goods. But Jonah’s influence doesn’t end there. He’s led transformative campaigns for organizations like Greenpeace International, The Center for Humane Technology, and the ACLU, as well as collaborated with major brands including Microsoft and Patagonia. His work has been featured in prestigious publications like The New York Times, CNN, and NPR, solidifying his reputation as one of today’s most influential social innovators.
