Tomi Davies is a Nigerian investor, author and tech evangelist who is widely considered the God-father of Africa’s angel investment scene. He is also the founder of the Lagos Angel Network (LAN), as well as the founding President of the African Business Angel Network (ABAN).
He lives and works mostly in the UK, and he’s spent much of the last decade investing, mentoring, and advising start-up founders, angel investors, venture capitalists and a good number of public and private institutions. As an angel investor, he continues to manage a growing portfolio of tech-enabled businesses that originate from Africa.
In this candid conversation with Andile Masuku, Tomi shares thoughtful insights, and reflects on his colourful professional career which began in the 1980s-- back when he worked in technology systems management roles for FTSE 100-level companies like Elf Aquitaine (now TOTAL), Marks & Spencer, and Ernst & Young.
