This year I co-founded an e-helicopter company (Uber for helicopter), the first in Africa. By Monday, I will reveal the company and unveil a waitlist for those that want to fly helicopters across Nigeria. Yes, fly over those traffic paralyses!
Our business model is like Uber-for-helicopter where with your phone, you can book and fly a helicopter, around key cities and connections in Nigeria, and beyond. Our full launch remains Q1 2020.
In my Group, 2019 is the best year ever, as we have generated massive value, multiplying assets value through unique business models, linkages and partnerships, we have deployed and orchestrated around the world. By moving upstream, we have found and unlocked opportunities in new markets and territories.
Our Practice remains focused on serving Boards, CEOs, Founders and Executive Management, delivering uncommon business insights in a very unique way. Because we own and run companies, we understand the challenges, and consequently have deep insights on how to navigate them. Our frameworks are market-ready, practical and realizable, and we have many believers.
As we unveil this waitlist, I want you to see it with optimistic exuberance on what technology can do to fix logistics frictions through better utilization of assets and factors of production. From trucking to carpooling to helicopter operations, algorithms can optimize many things , even as we wait for governments to deepen our infrastructural capabilities in Africa.
