In this interview meet Blessing Achu, the founder of 360 Creative Hub in Lagos Nigeria. With her business she provides a co-working space for fashion designers, aka a co-sewing space, she brings together young designers with professionals in the field and she runs a fashion design accelerator that helps young designers understand the business of fashion, how they can grow a sustainable fashion venture and how technology can impact their business.
In the interview we speak about how she came up with the idea, how she transitioned from her lucrative job in IT to launch 360 creative hub, her biggest learnings from the launch and how she is making an impact for young designers in Lagos.
We also speak about the challenges of the startup phase of her business, what keeps her going when things get tough and what her advice for young Nigerian entrepreneurs is.
There are a lot of things to be learned from Blessing and so I hope you stick around for the full interview. And now, without further ado, enter Blessing Achu.
