Meanwhile, the Group Managing Director of Numero Groups of companies and South-West Chairperson for Gymnastics Federation of Nigeria, Omowunmi Olalere, has admonished Nigerians planning to venture in to business to be open and embrace collaboration in others to succeed.

Speaking during the 3rd Anniversary of Numero Groups of companies and unveiling of Omowunmi Olalere Foundation, Omowunmi attributed failure experienced by many business owners to the inability to study the industry they want to venture into and network with the right people that are already in the business.

“Before I started my companies, I did a lot of research and had interaction with core business owners which gave me the opportunity to combine their challenges and strength to start my own business. So, any time I have challenges, I always have one or two people to reach out to that guide me so that I don’t make the same mistake they made in the past.

Omowunmi, who is an ex-banker and graduate of Agricultural Economics, said that most of her companies were birthed as a result of her experiences, “Numero Groups comprises of Numero Homes Global Resources, Numero Farms, Dozen Price and Numero Facility Management.

She hinted that despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic they were able to keep the 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 3rd anniversary ‘Taking the Big Leap’ with the launch of Numero Advantage and Omowunmi Olalere Foundation. Numero Advantage, which offers five different products, aimed at helping people own a housing collective or as an individual in the easiest way considering the economic reality in the country.
