Thank you so much Tomie. The email series was an eye opener. I learnt a lot! It has activated a new hunger for investment in me and also a strong desire to pursue my goals.Emmanuel
In response to multiple emails from my blogging commnunity, I launched an investor community called ”The Green Investment Club” for millennials ready to break the pay-cheque cycle and build investment portfolios.
We started with 35 members in August 2017 and currently have close to 600 members, resident across 11 countries, who have invested >$1m in Africa so far.
Who says Africans can’t invest in Africa?
My book was featured as the No.1 new release in the crowd funding category when it was launched on Amazon in May 2018 and ranked No. 6 in the Amazon bestsellers rank
I had the opportunity to interact with millennials across the country on my book tour. At each city stop, I was reminded of how interested our young people are about financial literacy and making better money decisions

Got invited to speak at the African Leadership University in Kigali,Rwanda
This was my first international speaking engagement and it was such a delight to see how similar we all are in our interest in financial literacy and learning how to make better money decisions.
This is my foray into core media with a focus on democratizing financial education to as many millennial black people as possible across the continent of Africa and in diaspora.

Technology enables scale which is very important for the financial industry in Africa.
