Stephen is a serial entrepreneur, he built Crashpadder.com selling it to Airbnb in 2012, followed by Pact Coffee; a VC-backed coffee business that delights hundreds of thousands of coffee drinkers and hundreds of coffee growers alike. During the past ten years Stephen has screwed up less than he has succeeded and he loves to share the hard lessons in candid detail, warts-and-all.
Stephen is proud of his accomplishments, such as out-executing Airbnb in the UK with one employee and £10k, and very comfortable with his screw ups, one of which resulted in deportation from Nigeria. Motivating, engaging storytelling is the tool Stephen have used most often as a founder and CEO; whether running a board, fundraising, selling businesses, hiring rockstars or getting out of trouble. He’s excited to tell these stories to a new audience and highlight the need for risk, innovation, an open mind and an open heart to win big.
