Episode 79: On Science and Imagination with Chinedu Echeruo

Greetings Glocal Citizens!
I've crossed the Atlantic Ocean and landed safely in NYC for my annual #BKSummer. My guest this week takes me back to my first NYC summer. The summer when I decided that New York would one day be home for me. A summer spent test driving the life of Wall Street bankers in the SEO (Sponsor for Educational Opportunity) Career program internship. While Wall Street was no fit for me, it helped form the foundation of my guest's professional career. Chinedu Echeruo, currently based in New York, born and raised in Nigeria, is a serial entrepreneur and firmly believes that individuals, empowered by imagination and information, can solve virtually any problem. He founded the pioneering travel app HopStop (Apple acquired HopStop) that helped millions of users navigate public transportation in major metropolitan areas around the world. Chinedu has been featured in media including Bloomberg, Fortune, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, CNBC and more. Chinedu was also a core member of the investment team at AM Investment Partners, a $500 million volatility-driven convertible bond arbitrage hedge fund. Prior to completing his M.B.A., he spent several years in the Mergers and Acquisitions and Leveraged Finance groups of J.P Morgan Chase where he was involved in a broad range of M&A, financing and private equity transactions. Chinedu holds an M.B.A. from the Harvard Business School and B.S. in Finance and Accounting (Honors) from Syracuse University.

In his latest series of new ventures he currently goes by the title Dreamer at the Start-up School of Alchemy and the Love & Magic company. Once you've taken in this episode, at the very least you too will be in a better position to imagine all that is you!
