On 14 January 2018, as he attempted to board a flight to London, my guest this week, Marek Zmyslowski, felt a hand on his shoulder from the Polish customs agents. His business partner in Nigeria had bribed the local police to get him placed on Interpol's Most Wanted List.
This is just one of many extraordinary incidents during his adventures in building start-ups in Poland and Africa, including co-founding 'The Amazon of Africa' Jumia.

We talk:
- Defending accusations of being a 'white saviour'
- His fight with the Nigerian justice system
- His lessons building software teams
- How to stay resilient
- How we must reform capitalism


To your humanity,
