Naa-Sakle Akuete Founder, Eu'Genia
After attending Wellesley College ‘08 (with a stint at the London School of Economics), Naa-Sakle spent four years in finance working for Lehman Brothers and Barclays Capital. Her position there entailed studying business models, understanding the opportunities and pitfalls, and being able to communicate these strategic opinions into a succinct investment decision. The majority of the companies in her purview produced consumer products. In 2012, Naa-Sakle matriculated to Harvard Business School where she continued her focus on consumer goods, as well as manufacturing, social enterprises and family-run businesses. After graduation in 2014, she returned to finance where she served at J.P. Morgan as a US Equity Analyst in the airline space before deciding to leave and jump into the skincare space full time.
