The Isaac Series is an online masterclass where African disruptors tell the stories behind the brands they built. Hosted by Isaac Oladipupo, The Isaac Series airs on Instagram Live via @theisaacola every Sunday 6pm (WAT). Its uniqueness is in the vulnerability of guests in revealing previously untold stories about their failures, challenges, successes, processes, and rare lessons from their unique journey. The aim is to transform the upcoming generation from consumers to producers, shielding them from repeating mistakes while increasing the number of empowered youths above the weaklings.⁣
