Moses Olaniran is a serial entrepreneur in transition. He spent six years growing his online home-improvement supply business
in Pontiac before selling it earlier this year. About the same time he started eBabEx, a foreign language start-up that is creating a cloud-based marketplace for foreign language services.
Olaniran is utilizing the tech expertise of Menlo Innovations
in Ann Arbor to build out his online marketplace where clients can hire foreign-language services providers. He is also applying to the entrepreneurial accelerator Bizdom
in downtown Detroit in the hopes of building and scaling his company quickly
"We're starting with lean start-up principles," Olaniran says. "Within six months we hope to have a minimum viable product. By working with groups like Bizdom and Menlo, we hope it'll give us access to a good network of professional investors."
Olaniran is currently raising seed capital for eBabEx and hopes to launch the start-up's first product within the year.
