Tunde Alao | CEO | Ysplit.com | Brooklyn, New York, United States | | I’m the CEO of YSplit, a Y Combinator company that raised $1 million seed round from the likes of Paul Graham and Paul Bucheitt (founder of Gmail). My primary function is developing the backend and front end of YSplit, coming up with our growth strategy, and raising money. Before YSplit, I interned twice at Google where I learned first hand what it takes to build and manage the software that is used by millions of people daily. I also worked closely with managers at Google to understand how to lead a team of highly talented developers and all the difficulties that may arrive. I was also the creator of Tonikami youtube channel which was one of the most popular channels for learning how to develop Android and iOS apps. Since founding YSplit and attending YCombinator, I’ve met a lot of CEOs building really interesting companies such as Brex, Airbnb & Segment. I became fascinated with understanding the differences between the CEOs and how those differences impact their work. I’d love to judge this competition to apply the knowledge I’ve picked up along the way and to broaden my understanding of what makes a good CEO.

Landon Vago-Hughes | Chief Product Officer | YSplit | Brooklyn, New York, United States | | Graduated in Mechanical Engineering 2018. During this period cofounded an app called Cluttr a productivity tool for roommates. Apple made us app of the day in Oct 2018. We then received a $50000 investment offer. This gave us confidence to apply to YCombinator the most prestigious accelerator in the world. We turned down the $50,000 and placed our bets on getting into YC. We were accepted in December 2018 and took their $150,000 investment for far less equity. On the 1st January 2019 we fly to Mountain View California to participate in the Winter 2019 YC batch. We pivoted to a group payments solution when we arrived to stop roommates from owing money to each other anymore. Our name changed to YSplit. In April 2019 we pitched at Demo Day and raised $1MN from Angels Investors included Paul Baucheit (The Inventor of GMail), Solomon Hykes (Cofounder of Docker) and the founder of YCombinator himself, Paul Graham. 1 year later we are based in NYC and we have 1000s of user automatically splitting bills from Netflix to T-Mobile.

Boateng Opoku-Yeboah | Chief Technology Office | Cluttr Inc | Brooklyn, New York, United States | | Started as a self thought programmer in high school and landed my first internship in Google as a security researcher within 2 months of starting college. I then did 2 follow up internships in the next 2 years in Google mountain view where I worked on Android team and then in Google Search working on products for billions of people to use daily. Whilst working on large scale software in a large team, I picked up leadership skills and communication & management of people more experience than me as well as less experienced, which is one of the skills that will help me judge the Annual 2020 CEO World Awards. After Google, I went on to start a USA based fintech company where I have the role as CTO and lead all the system design and changes in system architecture as well as making hiring decisions for our engineering team. I represent my company at conferences and other events that strengthen our brand image so I am aware of the public facing skills someone on a role such as a CEO should have which is one of the key components I will be looking at.
