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.

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