Bio:

Emo Ikede started his company, EjiTech (www.ejitech.com) to help people and businesses effectively manage their finances, increase productivity, and achieve goals.  He does this through coaching, workshops, seminars, online courses, publications and his own personal example.

A highlight for Emo was in 2019 when he donated 9000 copies of his book (How Students Save over $10,000 A Year). In doing so, every Grade 12 student in Nova Scotia can receive a copy to help them manage their finances as they transition out of high school and start their post-secondary education and career.

He attributes his business growth over the last 10 years to the Sobey School of Business. The MBA program gave him the network, skills and tools to leverage technology and social media to create sustainable, scalable and profitable solutions for his business and his clients.
