Dotun is the Managing Partner at Starta, a platform that makes it easier to build, discover and track high growth businesses in Africa. He is the founder of Yhello Technologies (previously meals.co.uk) an on-demand food delivery platform in the UK.

He was responsible for investing in early stage startups in Africa via Potential.VC, a UK-based angel syndicate fund. He was the recipient of 2014 Southwest England Breakthrough Business Prize, and has been identified as one of the 42 under 42 most influential business person in Southwest England.

Dotun has a PhD in environmental management and worked as a Post-doc Research Fellow, but found it more interesting to be a startup pirate than join the academic navy.
