Bankole Cardoso is the Managing Director and Founder of Easy Taxi Nigeria. Bankole was born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria before attending Boston College where he studied business management. After living abroad for 12 years, he decided to move back home to Nigeria.
Bankole’s life changed dramatically with the onset of Ebola. His mother was the doctor who identified and quarantined the index patient in Nigeria and in so doing, prevented an outbreak in the most populous country in Africa. Bankole and his family have since set up a health trust in his mother’s name to improve the Nigerian healthcare system.
Bankole was listed on Forbes Magazine as one of the 30 most promising African entrepreneurs under 30 and has been featured on CNN Africa Start-Up and The World Economic Forum.
