Analog Team was cofounded by Oladosu Teyibo, Myesha Luster, and Yao Adantor to connect diverse talent to tech companies. The software company works with tech firms that are looking to build transformative software products. Analog Team acts as a matchmaker, identifying the needs and developing the solutions. Tech firms collaborate with individuals from underrepresented communities to power their digital business.
Teyibo’s work isn’t limited to the United States. He provides opportunities to African engineers who want to work with startups in the United States. For decades, India has been the primary outsourcing destination for IT services. Teyibo’s goal is to make Africa a go-to resource for talent.
“There is not a pipeline issue or a knowledge gap,” Teyibo told Insider. “It’s just about providing opportunities and looking for the gems that are in the rough.”
Africa’s emerging tech landscape is unlocking a wealth of opportunities. Teyibo is positioning his business to be on the cusp of change and leverage the talent in Africa.
“The world is on the “precipice of innovation and change,” and positioning oneself as a business leader early can pay off in the long run,” Teyibo told Insider. “In the next 10 or 20 years, you can actually have a say in where we go as a global community.”
Prior to launching Analog Team, Teyibo pursued a degree in information systems technology at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC). Then, he spent some time at the Cyber Innovation Center. It’s a not-for-profit corporation on a mission to “develop a sustainable knowledge-based workforce that can support the growing needs of government, industry, and academic partners.” While at the company, he managed mergers and acquisitions.
In 2016, Teyibo decided to shift directions. He left his job at Cyber Innovation Center and pursued the path of entrepreneurship.
For aspiring or new entrepreneurs who want to build an impactful business, Teyibo offers these words of wisdom: “The most important thing about building a business is to be the last one standing. The right way to do that is to constantly innovate.”
