Euler Bropleh

Founder and Managing Director - VestedWorld

Euler Bropleh is the Founder and Managing Partner of VestedWorld, an early-stage fund manager that aims to catalyze growth and development in some of the most underserved markets around the world. VestedWorld leverages its deep knowledge and networks to identify businesses that can play a role in transforming industries and communities where they invest. VestedWorld is committed to being a leading early-stage investment fund manager for emerging markets. They have supported more than 30 African startups addressing critical social and market needs in Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Rwanda, and Uganda.

Through his work at VestedWorld, Euler serves as a Board Member at Viamo and Vanu, as well as a Board Observer for Jetstream Africa and Victory Farms. These are just some of the aforementioned businesses that VestedWorld has funded and worked with. This business is a huge passion point for Euler as a Liberian native who left the country during the Liberian Civil War. He understands firsthand how conflict, instability, and lack of economic growth can impact the lives of people in developing countries.

Before starting his journey as an entrepreneur, having founded VestedWorld in 2014, Euler had experience working at leading law firms. He spent 6 years in law working as an Associate at Latham & Watkins as well as Vedder Price P.C., where he represented Fortune 100 companies, venture capital and private equity firms, and emerging businesses worldwide. This laid the foundation for his work as an angel investor.

Euler attended Emory University where he earned his Bachelor of Arts in International Studies. He then attended the University of St. Andrews where he earned his MSc in International Strategy and Economics and was a Bobby Jones Scholar. Following his time at the University of St. Andrews, Euler attended the University of Chicago Law School. Here he earned his JD, was a Donald E. Egan Scholar, and received the Ann Watson Barber Service Award.

Euler splits his time between Accra, Ghana, and Chicago, IL. He serves on the Board of the African Leadership Foundation (which supports the African Leadership Academy and the African Leadership University), mothers2mothers, AgriCorps, Ingenuity, and The Field Museum.
