The phrase “the end depends upon the beginning” is important to Wole. He began his finance career as a summer intern at J.P. Morgan, leading him to Commercial Credit, Citigroup, Willis Group, and back to J.P. Morgan Chase. This path led him to create MoCaFi, a financial technology company focused on financial inclusion, working to bring responsible financial products to historically marginalized communities. Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, Wole journeyed to the tri-state area via Williams College and New York University. Once he got to New York City, he discovered the joys of public transportation, the benefits of milder winters, and the magic of food delivery. This is an area he loves and calls home. His family – wife, Kim, and two daughters, Quinn and Avery, have a bustling and vibrant household. Creating an engaged, balanced life is essential in Wole’s life. To the core, he believes that service to others is the barometer of a well-lived life, and he tries to deliver against that promise every day.
