Tomiwa is passionate about electrifying Africa, as depicted in his Harvard Business School Annual Portrait project where he laid out the basis for this passion. His professional career has revolved around this goal of improving the electrification around Africa. He co-founded SunFi Corporation and currently serves as Chief Operating Officer.

In addition, Tomiwa is an active investor and advisor in the African startup ecosystem.
Previously, he was a Manager within the Grow Africa Team at The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) where he has served several clients providing strategic advisory and executing on energy projects, including in Nigeria and other African countries.
