Tope Awotona

Founder & CEO at Calendly

Prior to Calendly, Tope spent the majority of his career in enterprise software sales, working for companies such as IBM, Perceptive Software, and Dell Technologies. He grew up in Lagos, Nigeria and came to the US in 1996. Tope graduated from The University of Georgia with a degree in Management Information Systems, and currently resides in Atlanta and New York City. When not fine-tuning and perfecting Calendly, he’s probably LOLing at a standup comedy club, (occasionally) showing up for CrossFit, or dreaming about a tropical vacation.
