Q. Where did the idea for izikjon .com come from?

A. Izikjon as a brand has been for a long time, up to a decade, 2008/2009 but it has been on individual basis, 2014 we ventured into a lot of businesses like telecommunications, agricultural produce imports and export, even currencies, but we eventually settled on crypto currency by upscaling it and branding it.

Q. What is your business background and what got you interested in startups?  

A. I’ve always been a business-oriented person, right from school through university days, even my family. Startup is essential, its good when you build something from scratch, what you have a passion and vision for, so regardless of the industry, you know why you’re in for it.

Q. How did you initially raise funding for izikjon .com?

A. Like I said earlier, it has been series of businesses done back to back through the years, so I acquired some personal savings, most of it was used for the startup and also got loans from family and friends which was for a short period.

Q. What do you think is the difference between growing a business in an emerging economy like Nigeria, compared to growing a business in Europe?

A. The difference is very clear, which is economy difference of Nigeria’s compared to Europe. There are so many hassles that needs to be worked on while dealing a business in Nigeria, ranging from lack of funds, policies, economy status to lack of regulatory bodies, but in Europe, it is easier because of the economy over there and the easy access to funding through loans and etc. which makes it all better.

Q. What has been your biggest achievement so far as a startup owner?

A. is my biggest achievement, starting from a one-man show to more than 20 staff all in the space of 12 months, the rapid growth is my greatest achievement. We have a lot of people on board bringing ideas every day, working round the clock 24/7, which is very surreal to me.

Q. What has been your biggest challenge so far as a startup owner?

A. itself is my biggest challenge, starting a new phase of business, completely different from the “norm” can be quite challenging gaining acceptance from people. Crypto currency is a new thing in Africa, the major challenge I have is funding and regulation, there is so much we can do if we have more funds to grow and position ourselves. Wide acceptance by people is directly proportional to regulating it in the country.

Q. Would you ever consider expanding to Europe and the US, if so why?

A. Expanding to Europe and the US is a must and it’s something I have had main focus on for a long time and its certain, why because we are involved in a global business so we need global presence, from Nigeria, to Africa, then Europe and the USA. Doing business in these places gives an edge and international recognition. Having an identity in an international market is essential.

Q. How long has your company been in business and who is the team behind it?

A. Izikjon as a brand has been for a decade, but has been for a year now. We have an effective team working round the clock from the General Manager Mr. Tosin Howells who has been doing so much in respect to regulation, including all various departments, advisers, board of trustees is the team behind izikjon.

Q. In the coming year, what would you like to have achieved with your business?

A. I’d like to have achieved quick settlements of payments, secondly Advanced technology of crypto currency, seeing how it fits into the proposed Federal Government cashless policy, so we could have techies like a bitcoin App and Atm cards powered by izikjon. I’d like to see my business help people in using instant payments at every facets of life.

Q. If you could give one piece of advice to someone looking forward to starting a business/start up, what would it be?

A. Starting a business is not easy, but one advice I would give is to be consistent, always evolve, accept losses and don’t dwell on them, accept defeat, re-strategize, learn unlearn and move on. That’s it, you have the key.

In conclusion, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our esteemed users for including Izikjon in their bitcoin trading/business story for the past year. We look forward to successful cooperation in the future. Thank you.

Nonetheless, I appologize, because I can not subscribe to your entire strategy, all be it exciting none the less. It would seem to everyone that your remarks are generally not totally rationalized and in simple fact you are your self not really thoroughly certain of your argument. In any case I did appreciate reading it.

      Hey! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

      I have learned some important matters through your website post. One other stuff I would like to state is that there are plenty of games out there designed specifically for preschool age little ones. They contain pattern acknowledgement, colors, pets, and styles. These usually focus on familiarization instead of memorization. This will keep a child engaged without experiencing like they are learning. Thanks
