Meet The Team

Ayo cofounder



Hey there! I'm Ayo, a co-founder at ShadowKat. I have a wealth of experience in the fintech and health tech industries. But that's just one part of who I am. I'm also a proud mom of three amazing kids who mean the world to me. What got me started withShadowkat was my deep desire to give my children an edge in this ever-evolving digital world we live in. I noticed something along the way –technology wasn't as prevalent in their curriculum; coding classes were far too expensive and those classes did not give them the foundation they needed. That just didn't sit well with me. I knew I had to do something to change the status quo, particularly for people of colour. 
So, I invite you to join me on this exhilarating mission to reshape the tech landscape.  Together, we can make a difference and give young talents the tools they need to thrive. Let's empower the future, one innovative step at a time.
