Jibril Jackson is the founder of Hyve: a platform rebuilding the social media experience.
After excelling throughout school and university, and graduating from law school, Jibril started and was excelling in a career as an investment banker. But he realized that the path he was succeeding on, was not a path that led to a great destination.
“I realized: finance is fake. That’s what I learned on Wall Street. It’s completely fake. There are no secret geniuses with big numbers. Everyone’s cheating. It’s all relationship-driven. That’s the game. The movie Wall Street was right.”
So he changed direction. He left his comfortable job to set out as an entrepreneur and build something new.
In this episode, Jibril shares his journey, career insights learned, and what he is building with Hyve.
