Deputy Director General of JETRO tells AB2020 why Japanese companies…
Tayo Bamiduro is the co-founder of Max.ng, a hyperlocal, on-demand delivery service based in Lagos, Nigeria.
Since launching in 2015, Tayo and his team have acquired food startup, Easy Appetite and also founded Max.Go, Nigeria’s first motorcycle transport app. About 50 per cent of Max’s delivery drivers are below the age of 30. And the company aims to create 500+ more jobs this year.
The Max.ng team was the first African team to be admitted into the Techstars startup accelerator programme in New York, following which they raised a funding round of almost US$1 million.
They were also named runner-up at TechCrunch Startup Battlefield in London, and named as part of the Top 12 Global Inclusive Growth Idea by the World Economic Forum (WEF) and the Harvard Center for International Development.
