What do you love about working for yourself?
The ability to take on problems much bigger than me
What's the hardest thing about being an entrepreneur?
Maintaining a positive cash-flow especially in a country where it is difficult to raise capital
What do you wish you knew before you started your business?
I wish i knew a bit more about what it takes to run an advertising agency. I've had to learn a lot on the job and from mistakes
Why do you do what you do? Where did the idea come from?
The idea came from identifying the opportunity in the space. There are very few online advertising agencies in Nigeria and with the world going digital; online advertising can only get bigger
How different is what you do now from what you wanted to do as a child?
There's not so much difference. I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit and Webcoupers is just another means of expressing my entrepreneurial skills.
How long have you been working out of CapitalSquare? What has the experience been like? Would you recommend it?
I have been working out of CapitalSquare for about 3 months now and it's been a really great experience. I love the flexibility, especially to small and medium businesses. Despite being cost effective the environment is world class. Yes , i would definitely recommend it.
If you could share a desk with two people in the world, who would they be? Why?
Bill Gates and Omobola Johnson. Bill Gates because despite his tremendous achievements he's humble enough to give back to the society. While i'd like to share a desk with Omobola Johnson because she spent her career in several areas of my interest and i'd love to learn first hand what it takes to succeed in technology consulting.
If you could be any animal, what would you be?
A fox i think
