Group Managing Director, Numero Groups of companies, Omowunmi Olalere, has admonished Nigerians planning to venture into business to study the industry they want to venture into and embrace collaboration with others to succeed. She said this during the third anniversary of the company and the unveiling of the Omowunmi Olalere Foundation.

The foundation was built to nurture talented athletes in Nigeria to the global spotlight, thereby bringing them to be at par with other athletes globally.

According to Olalere, the foundation would help them secure the space and skills needed to excel through the collaborative effort of concerned stakeholders.

Olalere, who is also and the South-West Chairperson for Gymnastics Federation of Nigeria, said: “Before I started my companies, I did a lot of research and had interactions with core business owners who gave me the opportunity to combine their challenges and strength to start my own business. So, anytime I have challenges, I always have one or two people for guardians.

The ex-banker and graduate of Agricultural Economics hinted that despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, she was able to keep her business moving.

“Numero Farms, in collaboration with Dozen Price, was able to record appreciable growth during COVID-19 as they were supplying farm produce such as eggs, chickens among others to different estates.

“Today, we are taking it a step further, which informed the theme for this third anniversary, taking a big leap with the launch of Numero Advantage and Omowunmi Olalere Foundation. Numero Advantage offers five different products aimed to help people to own a housing collectively or as an individual in the easiest way, considering the economic reality in the country.

“As the South West Chairperson for Gymnastics Federation of Nigeria, I think of what I can do differently because it is not just about having a portfolio. The Foundation aims to discover talents.”
