Bilikiss Adebiyi-Abiola

Founder

Graduate of the University of Lagos, Fisk University and masters from Vanderbilt University. She worked for IBM for five years before doing an MBA at MIT where she first came up with the idea for a recycling business. Her initial idea was to increase the quantity of waste she could collect from households by offering them raffle tickets in exchange. When she discussed this in Nigeria on a vacation she was surprised at the enthusiasm for her ideas. She took the idea back to MIT where she was able to gather support by entering her idea in competitions. Post that she returned to Lagos and whilst her children were at school she commuted each day to establish her new recycling business that she called Wecyclers.
