We have decided to give our budding entrepreneurs, first-hand information and practical knowledge of the real business environment by recently taking them on a site visit to Nigeria’s most successful enterprise-IO Furniture Limited.
IO Furniture Limited is Nigeria’s leading Furniture Manufacturing and Interior Design Consultancy Company located in Ilupeju, Lagos. Its large expanse of land has been cleverly divided into two strips; to the right is a factory where uniformed workers work tirelessly in producing quality furniture and adjacent to the factory is a storey building that houses the offices and showroom of this renowned interior design company founded by Muni Shonibare.
Head of Customer service and Sales, Mrs Folu Oshodi explained why the design company is a leading choice for many corporate organisations and encouraged our participants to be hard working and determined despite several challenges that may arise in their various businesses. In her words, “We didn’t just achieve all these in a day; we went through blood, sweat and tears.”
