Jude Dike has gained so much experience as an engineer, programming professionally for 6 years. He has an Engineering degree in Computer Science from the University of Lagos and has worked on many projects with companies locally and internationally revolving around Tech and Finance.


He is the co-founder of GetEquity, a company democratizing access to Startup funding and investment, and encouraging startup founders and customers to connect, thereby building trust among them. The mantra of the company is “challenging the status quo of startup financing and venture capital” in Africa.


In this Founders Connect interview, Jude shares more on this with me. We also briefly speak about his background, his career trajectory, the future of GetEquity, lessons learned so far and a lot more!
