Today we’d like to introduce you to Leo Dasilva.

Now, in as much detail as you’re willing to share, why don’t you tell us about what you do?

I have been building my private equity firm for over 3 years now and with how difficult it is for companies to get proper access to legitimate funding in Africa, I have decided to sign proper international partnerships that make us the middle men. What we offer is the ability to do the background checks on behalf of international funders and also help properly facilitate a system of trench funding to companies who will be getting those investments. My main goal is helping people access the proper funding for their dreams with the right structure which protects everyone. The future of Nigeria and Africa can be accelerated by private equity partnerships and funding.

Looking back, what success advice would you give to your younger self?

Do not be in a hurry to make any decisions, take many calculated risks that will not jeopardize your future and trust in your growth.

Do you have any final thoughts you would like to share with our audience?

Race has been a major issue in my international business growth, let a lone being a Nigerian living in Nigeria facilitating huge financial transactions but I would like to say that my country has over a 100million people and the amount of honest hard workers like myself are way more than the dishonest ones. What we have is a narrative problem, a narrative problem fueled by a blatant disregard for hard work and pr for anything but. There is no investing in Africa if it does not also involve the most populous black Nation on earth.
