Tech.Food.Talks. – RSVP at

Prayers answered. We’re back with another event!

For our 9th BTNG event, we’ve teamed up with a top chef — Rad Economist — and we’re excited to welcome you to Tech. Food.Talks.

And maybe, just maybe, you’re blissfully unaware that Rad Economist is one of the chefs at the forefront of the foodie revolution happening in West African cuisine, right here in U.K, so get ready — you’re in for a real treat on May 4th. In the meantime, if food porn is your thing — feel free to binge on his Instagram page.

One of the reasons BTNG events are special (Hey! This is honest feedback from our community), is our speakers. If you’ve been to any BTNG event in the past, you will, of course, agree that our speaker sessions are very interactive, with members of our community engaging with experts and founders on varied topics and viewpoints. We’re going to continue with a Q&A format which is not preachy — and small enough — for everyone to participate (only 40 fast-selling tickets available).

Speaking of speakers, we have Urenna Okonkwo who’s the founder of Cashmere, a social savings site for guilt-free luxury shopping for the modern millennial. Urenna is a well experienced professional who has made the transition from wantrepreneur to working on her startup.

We’ve also got Feyi Fawehinmi who is one of the foremost thinkers and writers on the Nigerian economy and political environment. Feyi’s range of expertise, depth, and ability to explain complex and thorny topics are unimpeachable.

What to expect? An evening of good food, quality discussions, and as usual, an avenue to mingle with folks building for Nigeria. See you there.


Venue: The Clerkenwell Kitchen, 27–31 Clerkenwell Close, London EC1R 0AT

Date: 4th May 2018

Time: 6:30pm — 9:30pm

Tickets: From £25

Urenna Okonkwo

Urenna is the founder of Cashmere, a social savings platform that helps stylish millennials save towards and buy luxury fashion guilt-free and without having to dip into their savings. She also works at a wealth management firm, providing financial advice to high net worth individuals. Before this, she worked in Forensics at KPMG.

Feyi Fawehinmi

Feyi qualified as an accountant in the UK more than a decade ago and has since then worked in the financial services industry in banking, insurance, asset management, private equity and pensions.

He has also gone from blogging on current affairs and socio-political issues in Nigeria to writing opinion pieces for BBC, Quartz Africa and various newspapers in Nigeria, including a twice-monthly column in Nigeria’s Guardian newspapers running for nearly two years now.

His blog is widely read in Nigeria and beyond. He is also a photography and book enthusiast.
