The Chief Executive Officer, Gracias Global Homes & Property Ltd, Dr. Ololade Abuta, has reiterated her commitment to youth entrepreneurship.
Abuta made this reiteration by hosting a capacity-building Masterclass for young people in the real estate industry to equip them with the requisite knowledge and skills for business growth in the industry.
In a statement, she said, “Despite a real estate boom in Nigeria, the country faces series of real estate challenges which include lack of infrastructure, poor documentation process, high cost of land acquisition and building materials, lack of access to mortgage.
“All these have led to the high cost of acquiring and renting houses in Lagos, Abuja and other major cities in the country.”
Abuta noted that Nigeria’s vibrant and enterprising youth could help solve these problems through innovation, technology and entrepreneurship. Through her masterclass, she shared her grass to grace story and tips on how start ups can grow their businesses quickly.
“The Peak Global Network initiative is in furtherance of our commitment to our corporate social responsibility focus of building leaders of tomorrow, even as we seek to support Nigerian youths on their journey to entrepreneurship and financial independence,” she said.
