Editor's PickForexUK social entrepreneur supports ambitions of innovative Nigerian bank 

November 11, 2021

A Sheffield-based entrepreneur is helping to drive the ambition of entrepreneurs in Nigeria. 

The Adam Bradford Agency will deliver the Inspiring Futures event at Media One Hotel in Dubai Media City on 17 November, and the co-founder of an innovative Nigerian brand is just one of the nominees shortlisted.  

Leslie Emenalo, founder of Kobopay, has been selected from a hugely competitive field of more than 200 hopefuls following a grueling application process to compete for a prize that includes a cash award and professional mentorship. 

Emenalo will pitch his business’s concept to a panel of expert business ‘dragons’, including Adam Bradford (founder of the Adam Bradford Agency), John Martin St Valery (chairman of the British Business Group), Helen Barrett (partner at CBD Corporate Services), Adel Al Awadhi (executive chairman of The Corporate Group) and Vincent Bardet (representing FedEx). 

Kobopay is a digital bank aimed at providing the underserved with access to everyday financial services. It achieves this through aggregating financial services through a single, easy-to-use platform.  

The goal of the product is to ‘democratize’ financial services while also facilitating trade and remittance services. 

Adam Bradford, founder and MD of The Adam Bradford Agency, said: “We were hugely impressed by the calibre of applicants and hopefuls, and it’s testament to the value, power and potential of Leslie’s business that Kobopay emerged from the field. 

“We look forward to welcoming Leslie to the Inspiring Futures event, which will be a celebration of entrepreneurship and serve as a catalyst for business ambition, in keeping with The Adam Bradford Agency’s own remit of supporting enterprising young people to achieve economic and social success.”
