Meet the team ✨
Introducing Ayo ✨
Foundervine started in 2018 as a small group of founders that shared a passion for entrepreneurship and technology. This community has become an important place for founders to connect, learn, grow and collaborate with each other.
And as such, we wanted to introduce you to members of our team so you can get to know who we are, what we do and how we can help you on your journey.
So what’s your name and what’s your role at Foundervine?
My name is Ayo, also know as aaayyyyoooooo! 🎶. Fun fact about my name, it’s a Nigerian name and it means Joy ✨. I serve as a Program Manager here at Foundervine.
How long have you been with the team and what caused you to join?
I officially joined the Foundervine family on 9 Nov 2020. As a young Black-British woman of African descent (Nigerian 🇳🇬), one of the primary driving forces for my work ethic is removing social barriers. Foundervine’s mission of supporting social change resonates strongly with my personal values and my work experience was evident that I’d be a great fit for the Program Manager position.
When you are not with Foundervine, what do you do?
Woah, I do juggle quite a few balls. To sum it up though, I:
- work with girls in Schools and Sixth Forms to help bridge the gap between low self-esteem and positive self-worth. I do this through intervention programmes, workshops and keynotes speeches.
- am advancing my Spanish speaking skills.
- serve as a Youth Leader within my church.
- create digital content for my YouTube channel.
Any side hustles? What are the key things you want the Vine Community to know about you?
I am a woman with a lot of energy (literally), the author of a book called ‘A Young Woman’s Guide to Seeking God’, love to dance to Afrobeats and socialize with people. Feel free to say hi :)
What’s your plan for the next 5 years?
Good question, it’s fair to say I’m still figuring that out… but as a whole, I’m very mission-focused and desire to make a positive impact in the lives of females across the globe, further develop existing relationships with friends and family; and grow tremendously in my faith in God.
We’re building the greatest and most diverse community of digitally enabled businesses globally. Our plan over the next five years is to continue to grow a community just for you — one which connects you to people, networks and knowledge that you need to grow a successful venture. We look forward to you joining the Vine Community. Sign up for our newsletter here!
