    Iyinoluwa Aboyeji Reveals What it Takes to Build a Successful Tech Company from Nigeria

    Have you ever thought about the likelihood of solving a problem that troubles you a lot?



    In this newest episode of Building from Africa, we dive into the world of Nigerian entrepreneurship with Iyinoluwa Aboyeji, CEO and general partner of Future Africa. As a serial entrepreneur, he's known for unlocking Africa's potential through technology. Having founded unicorns like Flutterwave and Andela, he's now empowering startup founders and business owners.



    He shares the challenges and successes he encountered along the way, while building Andela and Flutterwave, an experience that can offer you valuable guidance in your business venture.



    One of the key themes in Iyinoluwa's guide on building a business as an entrepreneur is the need to build with the intention of solving problems, and not chasing after the money.



    He believes that when people do not find reason to stay at whatever they are doing, it is the best time for you to keep at whatever you are doing, because more often than not, it pays off, a reward that he can attest to.



    If you have had questions on what it takes to successfully build a startup from Nigeria, this is the video for you. Watch it to the end, and let us know about your key takeaways in the comments section.

    Learn from the Best: Nigeria’s Leading Corporate Lawyer on Winning in Business

    We had an interview with Saadatu Falila, the Managing Partner of Hamu Legal, an innovative multi-disciplinary firm based in Abuja. Her practice is focused on the intersection of law, policy and emerging technology. Falila is many things, and wears many hats. With an in-depth understanding of the Nigerian legal system, she has advised clients across various industries including banking, fintech, health, hospitality, real estate, energy, intellectual property, asset acquisition, and project financing, thereby outlining her passion for Nation Building. She has cutting edge understanding of regulatory compliance requirements for companies and businesses in Nigeria.



    In this episode of Building from Africa, Saadatu broke down how she started her legal firm from scratch, her bold steps, and how her prior experience working with a law firm taught her hard work, how to set the bar in making impact, and how to keep pushing despite the fact that the Law profession is not a get rich quick pathway. According to her, these experiences have been instrumental in her capacity to guide entrepreneurs toward building successful businesses and have equipped her with valuable skills in managing people.



    At Hamu Legal, they do not only assist in guiding businesses and forming partnerships, but also making sure that they follow regulations. Her story is shared to inspire and educate entrepreneurs in the business world, so be sure to watch it through.



    If you are an entrepreneur, a founder or business owner, she has some advice for you below:

    -Having an alignment of values is critical to how you arrive at your business’ destination.



    -Law requires a process, which is why you need to be patient when it comes to the regulation of your business.
