Peter Adefioye is a ‘young pioneer’. Having founded the group Vanguard Connect whilst still at college, Peter started a movement that has brought together and benefited hundreds of students internationally from African & Caribbean backgrounds, encouraging the birth and collaboration of projects, sharing of opportunities, discussing of current affairs and building of networks. Despite having run a long-standing business from the age of 12, Peter has always kept a keen eye on the corporate world, having gained two years of experience within investment banking and professional services before even starting university. Being a passionate mentor and youth leader, Peter looks to pursue a career in politics and social entrepreneurship after completing his undergraduate degree at the University of Cambridge in Theology, for which he was awarded one of five full scholarships from the bank Crédit Suisse.
