Firm to empower Nigerian youths through online job creation
Nigeria’s fastest growing online marketplace for traders, the Owlette is providing youths an avenue to earn from their trade and skills. The digital platform launched in June 2020 is fast becoming the number one marketplace for young Nigerians.
This innovative and easy-to-navigate Owlette App, can be described as the “Uber” for online businesses, creating income for millions for sellers of goods and services, investment seekers and social media influencers. With just a smartphone and a decent internet connection, you can buy, sell and improve visibility for your business from the comfort of your private space, at any time.
Speaking to press men recently, CEO, Olusehinde Elijah Kolawole stated: “The Owlette was created with a simple vision to connect young business owners and freelancers in Nigeria to people who can buy their products and engage them for their services. It also provides an easy method for consumers to purchase their products of need. We’ve empowered many young men and women with sought-after business and entrepreneurial skills to live their work dream by building their business from the ground up and becoming financially and professionally independent”
“We have built an online business community for all and sundry. An actual marketplace. Online. You know how you can go to the market to get some stuff, and you look around and find it? That kind of market. Sometimes you check one stall, and when you don’t like what you see, you move to another stall.
“You might like some things but may not want to buy them. That kind of marketplace is what we recreated here. People can be hired to provide professional services too. You can find a photographer for your wedding, a web developer to design your business website, even if you are looking for a painter. You’ll find one. The engagement on the platform goes beyond buying and selling for users, there’s also networking opportunities“, he added.
Speaking about the much applauded Owlette App, he continued, “The UX design of the app was created with the youth in mind. It had to be cool and fun to navigate. They are doing so much with it. They are promoting music and selling tickets to their parties. Some are selling clothes, shoes, watches, bags. There are artisans, painters, photographers, videographers, all offering their services.”
Kolawole, continues to demonstrate the company’s commitment to youths resident in Nigeria and in diaspora with multiple empowerment initiatives. He believes that The Owlette can offer them a secure livelihood. In closing, he noted, “Youth empowerment is our primary goal. We want to enable them to do more. Earn more. People are doing more with The Owlette. They are selling more and earning more.”
