Our Founder's Journey

My name is Funlola Makinde and I am a media entrepreneur, a brand and marketing communications strategist with over 6 years of experience and practice in the industry. My motivation for creating my brand is to see startups an existing businesses thrive. The idea is to start small while thinking BIG. Most enterpreneurs find it difficult to navigate the business terrain, therefore my mission is to help them reach their target audience by providing tailor made brand strategies so they can grow and profit. I am passionate about women and the youth. I started out as a media personality /broadcaster. I have worked with several NGOs and organizations over time that are focused on women. I wouldn’t exactly call myself a feminist, I am simply a passionate Nigerian woman who is tired of seeing the female gender relegated when in fact ,we are the real nation builders. This passion became my driving force as it wasn’t just enough to talk, but to put action to it. This gender inequality gap needed to be bridged by empowering more women. I then started using my skills to train and coach women who were are aspired to be business owners.
