2 min read

Mr Agboola is the Chief Executive Officer of Flutterwave, Africa’s most valuable fintech startup. Under his leadership, the company has sealed a series of funding rounds, including the $250 million Series D round in February this year which pushed its valuation to $3 billion. Earlier this year, Business Insider Africa named him one of the top 10 African CEOs to watch. Apparently, he is living up to that expectation.

Prior to start founding Flutterwave, he worked at Royal Bank of Scotland, Africa Fintech Foundry, Access Bank, etc.

If you will like to see him win the award for young CEO of the year, then vote here.

This Stanford-educated tech entrepreneur is the Founder and CEO of Paga, one of the foremost fintech startups in Africa. He identified a payment gap and in 2009 came up with the idea for Paga which has inevitably disrupted the financial services industry in Nigeria and other African countries. The company has since continued to advance growth in the fintech/payments sub-sector of Africa’s financial services industry.

Last December, he discussed with Business Insider Africa how Paga’s infrastructure is now helping to drive/facilitate the next phase of fintech innovation on the African continent.

Dare and his fintech startup MFS Africa are on a mission to make it easier for Africans to send and receive money; just as easy as it is today to make and receive phone calls. He founded the fintech startup in 2009 and has served as its CEO since then. He has also significantly grown the company, raising about $100 million in 2021 alone through debt and equity.
