Ayinde Alakoye is a serial entrepreneur and the co-founder of his third live broadcast radio streaming venture, nēdlthe AI-powered search engine for live audio broadcast. He is a TechCrunch contributor, an Executive Board Member of the Applications Development Alliance and was a recipient of the 50th Anniversary March on Washington Emancipation of Capital Award with Mark Cuban and Congressman John Lewis.

Ayinde served as a speech contributor and message advisor to Senator Barack Obama during the 2008 presidential election campaign. A decade prior, he began his media career at the #1 revenue generating radio station in the country, WTOP, before setting sales records for Clear Channel at KFI AM 640 (the #1 rated Radio Station in the United States) and CBS (Howard Stern), respectively.

After leaving the ad sales business on top, Ayinde started Thumb Radio with his business partner to stream every radio station on the planet to your cell phone – in 2003. That technology later evolved into a partnership with his former employer, Clear Channel, which became the first iteration of the iheartradio app.

For those who are still having a hard time finding a copy, I give you:

So this just happened. Was once @Alanis’ production assistant at a concert in Houston (we didn’t meet), and now speaking at the same @VanityFair event. Unbelievable.

This 96 year old abuelito wrote & sent me a song of encouragement for the movement yesterday.

It’s been a hard week, but this filled my heart with joy.

Thank you for this little gift of happiness, Abuelo Jerry!
