Identified as Kike Oniwinde, this Nigerian lady is currently been celebrated on the internet for her lastest invention. She has built an app called Black Young Professionals Network (BYP Network) to connect black professionals and students all over the world for networking and career purposes.

The young lady who is also an athlete, is a graduate of Economics and holds a Masters degree in Management from University of Florida, which she gained on full track and field scholarship. Due to this great innovation, she has been named Future Leader in Technology by Sky Corp

Speaking on what motivated her to build the app, she said: “I grew up as an elite athlete and I only saw my value in my sport as the entertainment industry is where black people succeeded. It wasn’t until I met exceptional black students at UF that I realized we succeed in all industries. From this, I decided to create a platform to connect black professionals globally so that we can all see our excellence”.

"The plan is for BYP Network to be the go to platform for black professionals who want to connect locally and globally to create new businesses, friendships and careers. Representation is important and I believe this platform will empower the black community. I’ve benefited significantly, as I connected with my American Co-founder, Adrian Claudius-Cole through BYP Network” , she said.
