Olajumoke ADEKEYE

Often described as a tour de force in business and project teams, Olajumoke is presently focused on three sectors: youth workforce development, public health, and social impact investing.  Olajumoke is the founder of the Young Business Agency, a social enterprise that provides employability skills training and recruitment services to job seekers.  She is also a research associate for the Clinton Health Access Initiative, an organization dedicated to saving lives through the scale-up of medical treatment and diagnostics in low and middle income countries.  An aspiring social impact investor, Olajumoke has served as an investment analysis lead on the United Nations Foundation’s Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves initiative. Olajumoke started her career as a trilingual researcher serving on non-profit boards. Her reflections on The Abraaj Annual Forum where she was invited as a panelist are worth a read: bit.ly/1tYQTfK and bit.ly/1w9tS9H.
