“We’ve probably lent more money than any startup in Africa. I don't think there's any lending company in Africa that is bigger than us in terms of what we do. And we do it with almost the most difficult people—drivers—on a day-to-day basis. ” Obi Ozor, Kobo360 CEO and Co-Founder.
The last of eight children, Obi was studying to become a Catholic priest in Nigeria when a protracted kidney disease cut short his priestly ambitions. After working in finance and for Uber Nigeria, Obi launched Kobo360 in 2016 to make Africa’s $300B logistics supply chains more efficient.
In this episode, Obi shares lessons he has learned building a company to fix logistics across Africa.
