In the last year, riveting news has been circulating on a 19-year old Nigerian founder who has taken the Tech-crypto world by the horns. His name is Njoku Emmanuel, CEO and CoFounder of Lazerpay, a crypto payment gateway startup with the main aim of facilitating crypto payments around the world for businesses and individuals. Lazerpay was launched in October 2021 alongside CoFounders Abdulfatai Sulaiman and Prosper Ubi, and has raised more than a million dollars for funding the company.


In this episode of Founders Connect, Njoku shares his background with me. His undeniable passion for coding which stayed true despite the adversity of his parents and loved ones, the many places he has worked where he was given the opportunity to hone his skills, his love for technology and crypto and building, and his enthusiasm for the future of Lazerpay.


I really enjoyed hearing him speak, and I hope you do too.
