Samuel Chukwunonso Eze
Founder and CEO
Samuel (Sam) Chukwunonso Eze is the Founder and CEO of OurPass, a business NeoBank – providing financial services and a suite of tools to businesses, to enable them start, grow and scale. A two-time founder and avid businessman, his passion and success stem from his commitment to creating solutions that power the world of commerce and make it easy for entrepreneurs to start, grow and scale their businesses. Parkcrowdy, Sam’s first venture, was selected as one of the top 10 Smart Mobility start-ups in Africa by Bosch in 2019. In 2021, when he introduced OurPass, his latest venture, the goal was to eliminate the challenge of abandoned carts for online businesses and boost their sales with a one-click checkout solution. Its success was hinged on the stable e-commerce growth projections exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. But the reality proved different, as e-commerce lost momentum, rendering the solution less effective.
Under Sam’s leadership, the company pivoted to become the neobank for businesses it is today. OurPass has earned the confidence of thousands of entrepreneurs who trust the company to provide the support they need to run the businesses of their dreams seamlessly. Sam holds a Bachelor of Engineering degree from the University of Ilorin. Before founding Parkcrowdy and OurPass, he was a Key Account Manager at Procter and Gamble in Nigeria, where he led a team that developed and implemented successful marketing campaigns. He also worked at Huawei West Africa and Acti-Tech Ltd.
