On the completion of her undergraduate studies, Risikat Temidayo realized that there was no white-collar job that interested her and as a result, ventured into the business of producing soaps and cosmetics. Her business, Composite Ventures 66 Nig ENT, is a passion project she was able to refine through the Tony Elumelu Foundation Programme in 2015.
For her, the most valuable lesson she received was the 12-week online training which helped her expand her business management horizon, technological and administration expertise, and sales, marketing and managerial expertise.
Today, Risikat is creating employment opportunities, direct/indirect wholesaling, and ensuring a clean environment for her community. She is also improving the standard of living in her locality by giving credit facilities to SMEs for them to pay back after-sales. Her dream is to have her brand in local and international markets in the next 3 years.
