#BlackBoyFly is a movement to encourage Black males of all ethnicities in regard to overcoming obstacles to achieve their dreams. Throughout the year, I’ll be featuring Black males that are flying toward their dreams. www.blackboyfly.club
Daniel Oppong, of Ghanaian and Canadian descent, is a former athlete and thriving entrepreneur. Marcus Whitney is the reason Daniel and I initially crossed paths. A few years back, Marcus invited me to his Health:Further conference. As I was walking the halls of the Music City Center, I saw a guy and immediately knew he was Ghanaian. It turned out that I was right, and we’ve been connected to Daniel ever since. Originally from the Dallas area, Daniel moved to Nashville after receiving his Master’s Degree in Organizational Leadership from Gonzaga University.
Daniel Founded OhanaHealth in 2017, with the goal of making it easier for high-growth health tech companies and early career candidates to find each other. The company recently launched its first tech platform OhanaConnect last year. He’s also the founder of The Courage Collective, a consulting company focused on Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion conversations and education. Before OhanaHealth, he was Talent Director at Jumpstart Foundry, a seed-stage healthcare Innovation Venture Capital Fund. His background also includes work in the non-profit, consulting, and education sectors.
