Jide Ehimika

CFO & Co-Founder
Jide’s passion is building innovative digital solutions for interesting problems. His entrepreneurship journey began 20 years ago when he started a neighborhood delivery service in his underserved Baltimore community while in middle school. This spirit of helping solve problems by offering different solutions stuck with him, and in 2014 he started consulting for organizations implementing digital projects to improve their operations. His clients included the World Bank Group and USAID, allowing him to travel and understand certain problems on a global scale. In 2016, Jide co-founded Noirbnb, a travel company designed for travelers of color, and enjoys his role as COO. Jide earned a bachelor's degree in Finance from Temple University and holds a master’s in International Projects from the Skema Business School in France. In addition to his entrepreneurial passions, Jide has been featured in national business publications such as Black Enterprise, NBC BLK, and Jopwell and regularly serves as a speaker for black millennial voices. He's been a guest lecturer on topics dealing with business and technology at New York University, Temple University and the University of Virginia. He strongly believes in community empowerment through education, economic unity and expanded opportunities to compete in the 21st century marketplace.
