She wrote “New Country. New Name. New website! Hello @LifeBankCares! Hello Kenya, we are so honored to continue our work of rescuing vulnerable people and driving impact at scale! Promise Kept everyone! Your fauvorite little startup that could is ready!”

LifeBank has over the years become one of Nigeria’s leading healthtech startups and it has won so many accolades as well as recognitions.

The startup founded by Giwa-Tubosun in 2015 was rewarded with a cash prize of $250,000 for winning the 2019 Africa Netpreneur Prize Initiative.

More recently, Cartier, a French luxury Jeweller, named Temie Giwa-Tubosun as a laureate for Sub Saharan Africa in its women’s initiative.

The startup is also playing a front role in the fight against COVID-19 in Nigeria. Lifebank collaborated with the Nigerian Institute of Medical Research (NIMR) to start a 2000-capacity drive-through center in the Yaba.

With the experience in running Lifebank in Nigeria, there is no doubt this startup will shine in Kenya.
