Tunde Olatunji


Tunde has managed digital products from an idea to services used by millions. Following training at film school, he joined BSkyB during the dot com explosion and built products for some of the world's biggest entertainment and sports brands. His training as a film producer underpins a belief that great products tell compelling stories.

In addition to product development, he has written libretti for the London Philharmonic Orchestra, been short listed for the PRS New Music Award, and read poetry at the world's largest literary festival. 

He is a research associate at UCL Knowledge Lab investigating how music lyrics can help improve literacy; his other research interests include interactive narrative, natural language processing, and computational creativity. He is also the founder of LYRICAL KOMBAT, a company whose mission is to use hip hop and technology to transform education and mental health for young people.
