Adeola Bojuwaye has always had the entrepreneurial drive from when he was a child. He made caps, CD shelves, sold recharge cards and run computer training courses in Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.
Although his father turned down the opportunity to invest in his computer training school due to lack of experience, that didnt deter him one bit.
In 2010, he and his co-founder got their first opportunity to build a real world solution. They developed a software to help address the operational issues at a small property firm in Stockport. With this milestone achieved they began to think bigger and the idea of Roundstone consulting was birthed after they identified key sectors in Nigeria that could benefit from their offerings.
Roundstone began operation in 2012, and has grown from from a staff strength of just 1 to 8 this year. It hasn’t always been easy Adeola adds, from losing core staff to recruiting the wrong ones. He has also grown from a N150,000 cheque for a service rendered to recording turnover in excess of N 27,000,000 and expecting to hit N 40,000,000 with a profit of at least N10,000,000 before the end of the year.
Adeola loves to give back to the Entrepreneurship ecosystem, from pledging to give N50,000 and offer entry employment every year to the best technology driven idea in the Science Department of Ahmbadu Bello University, to volunteering to be part of a technology hub, Enspire ATV in Abuja, Nigeria.
