We plan on organizing training programmes that will help entrepreneurs develop leadership skills, have clarity of purpose, stay true to their mission, work on their core values, etc.

Mentorship

Every successful entrepreneur owes their success to a string of mentors. We plan on exposing young entrepreneurs to the best knowledge and skills of successful entrepreneurs.

Seed Capital

We want to help entrepreneurs access new sources of capital, not just by giving them money or investing in their business, but by creating the conditions under which others will invest.

Networking

The goal is to bring together professionals and resources that complement each other’s endeavors. Growing businesses need to grow their networks and we want to help them do just that.

Web Design

Over one million SMEs and startups in Nigeria lack websites and over a half of that number are yet to have a professional looking website. We want to help solve this problem.

Marketing

Digital marketing not only boosts marketing but also aids online support to make customers feel supported & valued. We want to help young entrepreneurs learn how to maximize this tool.

Technology

Technology can really level the playing field for small businesses, giving them access to resources they would never have previously afforded. We want to help them learn how.

Community

Building a business is tiring. We want to create a community that can help entrepreneurs, by working with them to envision long-term success & designing the systems that will get them there.

Message from the Founder

We need to be the change we wish to see in the world. A ship in the harbor is safe, but that’s not what ships are built for. In the same vein, there’s something God has put inside of you that’s for the betterment of mankind. Discover it, cultivate it, and use it. Service is the rent we pay for being. It is the very purpose of life, and not something you do in your spare time. There is nothing more beautiful than someone who goes out of their way to make life beautiful for others. Like Warren Buffett said: “Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.”

It may look tough initially, but remember, tough times never last, but tough people do. The credit belongs to the man who strives valiantly because there is no effort without error or shortcoming. There is no sweet without sweat. Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. Like Thomas Edison said: “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” So don’t worry about being successful, but work toward being significant and the success will naturally follow. Try not to become a man of success, rather become a man of value. Be so good they can’t ignore you!

Lastly, dream big! If it is too big for your mind, it is too big for your hands. You have to believe it before you see it. I discovered in life that if your dream doesn’t wow you, you don’t have a big dream. And if you don’t have big dreams and goals, you’ll end up working for someone that does. But the good news is this; we all have dreams, and all our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them. And the way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing. Knowledge without action is meaningless! Remain ever blessed.
