    While many believe Nigeria’s high rate of unemployment is caused by a lack of jobs, there is another critical issue – closing the gap between talent and opportunity. This is what Ayodeji Adewunmi and his fellow co-founders are trying to accomplish through Jobberman, a Lagos-based, pan-African online job search engine. Jobberman was started by three entrepreneurs – Ayodeji Adewunmi, Opeyemi Awoyemi and Olalekan Olude – during their last year of university. The trio held a common interest in addressing Nigeria’s unemployment issues and quickly joined forces to develop the innovative platform.
