In this episode, meet Nosa Oyegun and Folayemi Agusto, the Co- Founders of EatDrinkLagos, a food website that allows residents and visitors in Lagos to find places to eat and drink, and find information about Nigerian food, including restaurant reviews and articles.
Eat Drink Lagos also organizes food festivals in Lagos and Abuja that promote culinary talents such as mixologists, bartenders, professional and hobby chefs and they created an event ticketing system called tix.africa that is specifically tailored for small businesses after they noticed how cumbersome it was to sell tickets for their events.
In the interview Nosa and Folly share:
- How they transitioned from 9 to 5 into running their own business
- How the business has evolved from a simple media website, to an event business and then an event tech company
- And what challenges they faced on their journey.
They also talk about the strategies that they used to finance their venture and what their advice for young Nigerians is.
There is a lot of gold in this interview and we hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
