About Me

Oluwaseyi Albert is the founder and CEO of Iyali; a early stage groceries delivery and food processing company currently operating from Lagos, Nigeria. He oversees the company's strategies, establishes partnerships, and manages relationships with farmers and other food suppliers.

Before venturing into the food industry, 'seyi worked as a Digital Marketer and Content Developer for 5 years, and led the social media team for the Muhammadu Buhari Presidential Campaign in 2015. Although, he infrequently creates digital skills training programs for 'the unjobbed' and gives creative support at Hefty Inc., his major goal is to create an efficient food supply chain that empowers farmers and provides wholesome food to people living in Nigeria’s major cities.

'seyi is also currently a mentor on the Tony Elumelu Foundation Entrepreneurship programme.
