Copper-catalyzed coupling of readily available ketiminoesters, allenes, and a diboron affords densely functionalized quaternary α-amino esters bearing adjacent stereocenters and versatile vinyl boronate motifs. The method utilizes a commercially available copper­(I) catalyst, operates at ambient temperature, and features a catalytic allyl cupration of ketiminoesters.
