A self taught “Jane of Some Trades'', I enjoy being at the intersection of product management, marketing and growth. I want to build things that matter and add value to people’s lives.

Over the last 10 years, I’ve helped build, launch, scale, drive adoption and retention of products in the U.S and Africa across several business domains. I truly believe the journey to building great products begins after it’s shipped, plus that’s where all the fun is.

Reading, trying out new restaurants, wine, and lazy pool days are all things I love. Currently residing in Lagos, NG

 

LAYO OGUNBANWO


BUILDER, MULTIPLE HAT WEARER, PROBLEM SOLVER, PRODUCT LEADER

 
 
Over the last decade, I have built a career focused on making a meaningful impact and improving people’s lives. I am currently the VP of Product Strategy at Piggyvest, a B2C fintech company focused on building and democratizing financial services for African millennials.
 
Prior to Piggyvest, I cut my teeth as the 7th hire at Axxess, a U.S based B2B SaaS healthcare tech company where I played a pivotal role in expanding the customer base to more than 7,000 healthcare organizations, empowering 250,000+ clinicians who service more than 1 million patients across all 50 states.
 
 



Fiercely committed to seeing and supporting more women in tech, I volunteer as a mentor with the Google Women Techmakers program in Sub-Saharan Africa, an initiative to promote, support and build a community for women to thrive in technology. I am passionate about paying it forward and thus serve as a Google for Startups Accelerator Africa mentor, where I share my knowledge and expertise to help start-ups grow. I am a Founding Member of The Feminist Coalition, a group of young Nigerian feminists with a mission to champion equality for women in Nigerian society, with a core focus on education, financial freedom and representation in public office.

Outside of work, I enjoy playing tennis , trying out new restaurants and laughing at my own jokes.

Women are doing amazing things in their spaces and celebrating these wonders will definitely inspire more girls to keep fighting.
