Success Stories

FROM OUR MEMBERS 

Oyeyemi Dosunmu, Founder of Oyeyemi Fashion 

"I launched my business March 8, 2021, with no knowledge of how to operate and grow a business. The plan was to learn along the way. Thankfully I applied for the Future Females Business School in April 2021 and I am proud to say that it was the best decision I have ever made. It has made building my start-up a lot easier by repositioning my business for success. In 3 months, my sales moved from 0 to 600 000 naira and above. I have been able to build a proper structure for my business. I recommend this programme for all entrepreneurs as this is an in-depth programme that will help you start and grow your business. I urge you to take the time to watch the videos and put the lessons to practice. Each lesson was a mind-blowing and intensely enriching experience for me."

Ogunrinde Eunice Modupe, Founder of Schoosify

" When I joined the Future Females Business School programme in partnership with UK-Nigeria Tech Hub, I was so excited and inquisitive to learn and know how to run the business I just started. During the initial modules of the programme, I learned a very important way to know exactly what my customers want and need. Through that exercise, we were able to pivot our business after our customer research and survey to suit customer needs. And the results were evident, before the programme, we barely got one full-paying customer to subscribe, after we launched one of the new products we had two paying customers in a month and more that are showing interest. Also, our customer's feedback and responses were more positive than the previous ones."





Adaeze Akpagbula, Founder of FarmSpeak Technology

“I have attended a series of accelerator programmes but none has been as helpful as the Future Females Business School Programme. My customer base has tripled, I have a software solution device for farmers where they can diagnose poultry diseases in simple steps. I started with 97 customers and today I have over 250 customers and in less than 3 months, I made 
1 000 000 naira in revenue just selling my software alone. 
And the best news is, there is a particular U.S programme that has contacted me offering to fund my business to build 400 hardware devices. All these just in 3 months, It’s a really emotional one for me, I am so grateful to the Future Females Business School  and UK Nigeria Tech Hub team and my coaches.”
Ngozi Nwabueze, Founder of My Pocket Lawyer

"Joining this Future Females Business School powered by UK Nigeria Tech Hub has been a blessing to me and my business as it was packed with so much information that is easy to apply with self-explanatory modules, and the best part is that I still have access to the modules for the next 9 months, Fantastic! 
I am glad I did this course and I am grateful to the Future Females and UK Nigeria Tech Hub team for this opportunity.  During this programme, we have added 10 new clients including a retainer and that pushed my monthly revenue up by 150 000 naira and we have onboarded about 4 more lawyers as our demand has grown. I absolutely recommend this programme to any female who is serious about taking her business to the next level.”
Clara Chinwe Okoro, Founder of My Beautiful Africa 

"The Future Females Business School programme has been quite a smasher. I have gained so much knowledge that has genuinely transformed my processes and I think it had to do with the fact that it is a
Female-led community that understands the challenges of breaking down knowledge for female-run business owners. I am so passionate about technology transforming my business as never before. My
business is more visible online now with the digital tools I am adopting to reach my Big Hairy Audacious Goal."



Adebisi Borokinni, Founder of MyInvest

"First, I must say that this is the most practical and impactful business-related programme, I have ever attended. The lessons and coaching sessions were the best. What I have learnt from Future Females that has repositioned my entrepreneurial journey includes; Your MVP is very important, you have to grow
your business in a lean way and test your idea before putting in all efforts and resources. Thank you
Future Females, it was definitely more than I asked for. I can’t wait to put into practice all I was taught. Love you guys."






Susanne Ogunleye, Founder of Jasmine Ultra Blue Solutions

"When I started the programme my business didn’t have a good digital presence and sales channels. But since the programme and improvement of my knowledge we have had 10 times more sales in the last 2
months than before the programme. We also had sales come in from our website which has never happened before and secured projects in other parts of the country. The coaches were also very relatable and ready to answer any questions. It was indeed an amazing programme. There are some lessons I will still watch over again and I am grateful we will still have access to the material and the community."

Mary Abiodun, Founder of Colibri Africa

“One of the reasons I joined the Future Females Business School was to increase the marketing skills that my business required. I and my co-founders gained more clarity for our service offerings and communications. While I was in the programme, I researched how to send personalised marketing
emails. I tried a marketing campaign and I got a 75% open rate in 2 days which was very impressive for me. With some of the ideas and lessons gained from the programme, I see us serving more customers in global markets and helping them take charge of their productivity. I would highly
recommend the programme because of the well thought-out content you get access to."
