Nigeria’s Toyin Sanni on investing without a safety net

By Oheneba Ama Nti Osei

Posted on November 20, 2020 14:29

This week, the Talking Africa’s stream is taken over: Ohenaba Ama Nti Osei speaks to leading Nigerian banker and CEO, Toyin Sanni.

From her early days in the banking industry, to the battles and challenges that made her grow, Sanni has known several worlds.

Instead of getting comfortable in her role as Group CEO at one of Nigeria’s largest investment banks, she decided to found a new venture, Emerging Africa Capital.

From the insider struggles to institutionalise processes within a big corporation, to the hustle to convince investors about the merits of her brand new company, Sanni’s real message is: just get started.

This episode is produced in partnership with our flagship event, Women Working For Change, on the 24 November => find out more here:

Understand Africa's tomorrow... today

We believe that Africa is poorly represented, and badly under-estimated. Beyond the vast opportunity manifest in African markets, we highlight people who make a difference; leaders turning the tide, youth driving change, and an indefatigable business community. That is what we believe will change the continent, and that is what we report on. With hard-hitting investigations, innovative analysis and deep dives into countries and sectors, The Africa Report delivers the insight you need.
