A. Sotomiwa

I currently work as a product innovation manager in London, United Kingdom.

I started my career as a graphic designer during my fresher days at Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) in 2011. I transitioned into product design after attending a summer program at HongKong Polytechnic University in 2015. After graduating and finishing National Youth Service, I attended the MEST EIR program in 2017 where I grew my design, coding and business development skills even further (funfact; I tried to start a wedding gift registry company with 2 other amazing people; Lucius and Eva).

I have since then worked in various product roles at early stage and well-funded companies developing both consumer-facing and business-facing products. I recently received an MSc. degree in Innovation Management @Lboro London where I was awarded the prestigious Dean Scholar Prize. I really enjoy playing at the nexus of business model development and product management. One of my proudest personal projects is this product that has been used by over a million Africans. I write about products, innovation, design and my personal journeys on my blog.
