If you are unfamiliar with the business terrain of Northern, you may not be successful when it comes to trading in that part of Nigeria.
To help you with this, Dankoli which is an online marketplace to connect buyers and sellers that aims to do business in Northern Nigeria via their mobile phones has launched.
Founded by Khaleed Oyewo, Onyechi Kenechukwu and Michael Mallo in 2016, the startup aims to revolutionise commerce in northern Nigeria by making it easy to do business anywhere within the region.
On what motivated them to establish Dankoli, Oyewo said that they were prompted to develop a scalable platform that will facilitate trade within the region due to the Boko Haram insurgency which has discouraged some Nigerians from trading in the North as well as the vast population in the region which amounts to 30 million. Many of whom are willing and ready to do business.
Throwing more light on Dankoli, Oyewo said: “While developing Dankoli mobile app we considered the masses which made us focus on a data independent app i.e. with or without internet when a user connects online it sync using our location-based technology to serve items within the user location. We are also considering the strategic integration of Facebook free basics so we can offer a 100% data free app.While we just launched our Android version, we are currently working/debugging an iOS version that will be launched in coming months.”
So, when next you think about doing business in any part of Northern Nigeria, it is highly recommended that you use Dankoli because it is the most reliable platform that connects you with sellers and other businesses in the region.
