We’re hosting a fireside chat with Ifeoluwa Olokode, Partnerships & Growth lead, LifeBank Nigeria.

LifeBank’s journey is nothing short of impressive: In a little over two years, they’ve gone from organizing voluntary blood donations to help address the shortage of blood and related products in Lagos, to a full fledged health-tech logistics company, ensuring fast, safe handling and delivery of blood.

They’ve raised over $200,000 in seed funding, won several global startup challenges including MIT’s solve and launched their services in Abuja, with more cities to come.

It’s safe to say we could learn a thing or two about building a startup that meets actual needs from LifeBank’s amazing growth.

In a conversation themed 'Building for Impact: The Journey from Idea to Startup', Ifeoluwa will be sharing the experience and lessons from LifeBank’s journey from idea to full fledged commercial endeavor.

Ifeoluwa brings her unique perspective as LifeBank’s head of growth, so you know you'll be gaining tons of useful insights!

There'll also be a Q&A session, so attendees get to ask questions and contribute to the conversation.
