Why you should listen

Temie Giwa-Tubosun founded LifeBank in 2016 with a simple but powerful goal in mind: to create a health supply chain that could deliver vital products and equipment from ports to clinic -- 24/7. Now working with hospitals across Nigeria and Kenya, she manages a delivery system that includes bikes, boats, trucks, tricycles and drones, all operating around the clock to make sure lives are not lost needlessly.

Giwa-Tubosun has worked with organizations including the Department for International Development, World Health Organization, UNDP and the Lagos State Government. In 2014, the BBC listed her as one of the "100 women changing the world." She was also recognized as an "African innovator" by Quartz and the World Economic Forum.
