Meet Moses

I’m a Fintech Co-Founder who’s focused on enabling African’s to build generational wealth. Prior to this, I spent half a decade at McKinsey & Co, with time focused on leading teams in serving the top 10 global banks on strategy, wealth management & digital transformation. I also drove operational excellence at the top mining and oil and gas firms. Beyond management consulting, I’ve also spent time in the waters of Africa-focused venture capital. Through-out this journey, my commitment remains the same – to grow the African continent through business.

I have strengths in communicating effectively with clients, finding meaning in ambiguous / ‘noisy’ information and challenges, and empowering teams to deliver results.
