Salif Diop

Risk Officer

I was born and raised in Dakar, and still remember how the city felt twenty years ago, when you could walk from the center of town to farmland in just a few minutes. The city is very different now, but I’m grateful to remain connected to agriculture through my work with Root Capital. I have degrees in both finance and business administration, and enjoy applying my professional background to a role where I can help businesses face the challenges they face on a financial, operational, and human level. As I further my career with Root Capital, I hope to continue learning from our stakeholders and grow our impact throughout West Africa. When I’m not at work, I enjoy playing sports, going to concerts, spending time with friends, and traveling.
