Mmobuosi’s entrepreneurial spirit began in secondary school when he sold clothes

— with his father, who provided guidance and was the company’s first investor. Under Mmobuosi’s leadership, Tingo built sub-Saharan Africa’s first mobile phone assembly plant.
In the past 16 years, Mmobuosi has made a name for himself in the telecommunications,
remittance, healthcare, and agriculture sectors within and outside Africa. He’s the brain behind companies like Tingo Remit, Tingo Health, Tingo Mobile Plc., Tingo Mobile UK, and Nwassa, all of which are under the Tingo International Holdings Inc. umbrella
