Head of Network & Operations at Connect Ventures
Keji is Head of Network & Operations at Connect Ventures and joined the team in 2017 having spent much of the 5 years prior, working in and consulting with early/seed stage tech startups on operations and strategic partnerships. She discovered her passion for startups after qualifying as a barrister and quickly realising that this was not the career path for her. At Connect, Keji is responsible for continuously developing ways to best add value to the portfolio companies. She is particularly passionate about the leadership development and founder wellbeing pillars of the Connect Founder Network and focuses on helping the portfolio’s founders transition from great founders to great leaders. In addition to her work at Connect, Keji is actively engaged in giving back to the community and serves as a mentor to the next generation of female founders and leaders, especially those from underrepresented backgrounds who are trying to break into the tech industry.
