For 10 years, he worked for two of Nigeria’s largest banks, handling operations and customer relations. He then moved into technology and founded one fintech company and an internet marketing agency.  

Chibuike Goodnews (photo) is a Nigerian fintech entrepreneur who graduated from Ahmadu Bello University in 2015 with a master's in finance, and from the Lagos Business School, where he trained in entrepreneurship development. He is the co-founder and director of Astravest, a fintech company founded in 2021.

The company, co-founded with Joshua Chinemezu (a software engineer), offers savings and investment solutions that aim to empower users and help them achieve financial freedom. It gives Africans access to multiple investment options, the information they need to make decisions, and a simple platform to grow their money or move their funds between different sectors.

With just 5,000 naira, or around $10.5, users can invest in commodities, real estate, or fixed-income assets. Astravest enables companies to offer real estate investments as a service. It is sufficiently secure, and users have to go through a vetting process before making investments.

Apart from Astravest, Chibuike Goodnews also founded Dochase Adx, an internet marketing agency launched in 2016. Through that agency, he provides a full range of marketing solutions to help both large and small businesses attract sales and reach target markets online.

Before becoming an entrepreneur, he worked for United Bank for Africa (UBA) as a banking executive between 2005 and 2006 and as a customer relationship manager from 2013 to 2016. Between 2006 and 2013, he was in charge of banking operations at Zenith Bank in Nigeria.
