Startup Profile: Startit — access smart solutions needed to build and groom your business

by | Apr 28, 2017

Startit is an organisation that offers business solutions, needed by entrepreneurs to start and grow their businesses. Their approach to offering these solutions lies in providing the knowledge, insights and the logistics support essential for business growth and development.

Co-founded by Brainerd Odiete and Obinna Igwebuike, Startit was launched in November 2016.

Startit takes care of the initial work ranging from developing businesses from the scratch to legal requirements. The aim of this is to allow business owners focus solely on running their businesses. As a result, profit is maximised. Also, due to this, entrepreneurs can build their business on a solid foundation and run with clear direction.


They also make research to enlighten entrepreneurs about the knowledge of their market and their competitive position. The team claims to provide all of these at an affordable price. Therefore, they see this as one of the means to actualise their vision of building Startit to a globally competitive business, starting from Africa.

Hence, they aim to unlock the value opportunities and stimulate entrepreneurial minds that can take advantage of these opportunities.


Getting right the necessary rudiments of successfully launching, grooming and developing a business could be a herculean task. In Nigeria, many entrepreneurs have struggled to break free from the clutches of setbacks. Usually, only a few emerge triumphant. Others eventually give in to overwhelming challenges and then fold up.

In conclusion, for Brainerd and Obinna to launch into this sphere, then they must have figured out actionable ways to practically salvage emerging businesses.

Do you have a business sapping the whole of your energy and ideas? Give Startit a chance to help. You can leverage on their platform now.
