Founder calls for homegrown solutions to Africa problems
Recounting his struggles to become a startup founder, the Kano State born innovator stated that Africa’s approach to youth empowerment must be dynamic to be able to harness the knowledge and contributions of young people on the continent. Halilu, while narrating his foray into business, said he rose from his family-owned businesses, Scirrocco, a tea and cold beverage company, and its sister company, Gongoni, which together form a group with 300+ products in Nigerian and African markets, to become one of the big names in Nigerian tech and innovation space.
