LoftyInc Allied Partners Ltd, one of the foremost enterprise development companies in Nigeria has reached a milestone this year, celebrating 10 years of innovation, impact and development. Over the years LoftyInc has worked across infrastructure, energy and social impact sectors (education, healthcare and agriculture) where it leverages technology, global partnerships & best-in-class processes.
LoftyInc started operations in 2009 with founding partners Wole Odetayo & Michael Oluwagbemi and later turbo-charged as the team expanded with Damilola Agboola and Idris Bello on a mission “To contribute to the enhancement of lives by creatively investing in ideas and entrepreneurs’’. Today, it has 3 core products and services (Start-Up Acceleration & Investments, Technology Solutions Development and Technology Driven Monitoring, Impact & Impact Assessment of Social Impact Projects), 4 branches across 4 states in Nigeria (Abuja, Lagos, Kaduna and Ibadan) with over five dozen staff members and several others among closely held affiliates.
LoftyInc has always believed in investing in the development of people through innovation in technology, operations, and processes. This is what led them to open one of the leading technology accelerators in Africa, Wennovation Hub, founding LoftyInc Capital Management (venture capital management service) and offer world-class technology, infrastructure, resource and social impact project management services through the leading Project Advisory & Innovation Division (PAID).
Since inception, the company has gained traction in local and international markets. LoftyInc has worked with development and multinational organizations like the World Bank, Total, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, WorleyParsons, Africa Leadership Forum, AfriLabs etc and reputable organizations like the Federal Road Maintenance Agency (FERMA), Development Bank of Nigeria (DBN), Bank of Industry (BOI), Debt Management Office, The Lagos State Government and Nigeria Communication Commission (NCC) – among several others.
As we take on the steps into a future that we look forward to anxiously with hope, we remember these words:
“People usually say that if you want to go fast, you go alone, and if you want to go far, you go with people. I think how far we have come on this Afropreneurship journey at LoftyInc in just ten years, shows that with the right people and with great values, you can go very far, very fast.” – Partner and Afropreneur, Idris Ayodeji Bello.
