Bio

A Business Studies graduate from the University of Westminster Sheka has been engaged in entrepreneurship in Sierra Leone since 2009, initially as founder of Splash Mobile Payments, Sierra Leone’s first mobile payments company and, more recently, as a business development consultant.

Sheka is the Chair of Global Entrepreneurship Network Sierra Leone, hosts of the monthly Freetown Pitch Night, a Director of Innovation SL, an incubator/accelerator helping develop start-ups, and Executive Director of ReGrow West Africa, a public private partnership strengthening Sierra Leone’s SME sector and highlighting investment opportunities in order to promote resiliency against future public health crises and other socio-economic challenges.

When not engaged in supporting entrepreneurial activity he has a, not altogether successful, interest in spearfishing.
