In this regard, he is betting on the idea that companies in America will start sourcing for talents from Africa.
“The world is on the “precipice of innovation and change,” and positioning oneself as a business leader early can pay off in the long run,”
“In the next 10 or 20 years, you can actually have a say in where we go as a global community.”
In a recent interview with Business Insider Teyibo said Analog Team now operates in six African countries, including Kenya, Ghana, South Africa, and Nigeria.
He added that the company has also worked with leading telecom operators, social media, and gaming apps and looking at hitting seven figures by the close of the year.
Now his next project is to outsource talents to build a new social media app, a database for user experience, and a data transformation tool.
According to Business Insider Teyibo has also partnered with the city of Montgomery, Alabama to create a training hub to create more talents.
“We’re also in conversation with HBCUs [Historically Black Colleges and Universities] and local universities to create robotics programs that focus on drone technology.”
For aspiring or new entrepreneurs who want to build an impactful business, Teyibo offers these words of wisdom:
"Analog Team was born out of the bad experiences of companies working with outsourcing companies and we were determined to get it right.
“The most important thing about building a business is to be the last one standing. The right way to do that is to constantly innovate.”
