Focus, Hardwork, And Determination : It Worked For Ms Funke Opeke

Focus, Hardwork, And Determination : It Worked For Ms Funke Opeke

Success, definitely does not come on a platter of gold, it comes with determination, focus, persistence, and hardwork. I’m very sure these are the daily routines of Ms Funke Opeke. Ms Funke Opeke is a successful business Woman. She is the brain behind Main One Cable. Born and raised in Nigeria where she graduated from Obafemi Awolowo University with a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering and she proceeded to Columbia University in New York where she obtained her master’s degree in the same course. She pursued a career in ICT in the United States and was the Executive Director of the Wholesale division of Verizon Communications in New York. She had lots of challenges in the process of actualizing her “main” dream, challenges like, all her savings going into the business, feasibility research and the likes. She is one of the top 15 Nigerian women to highlight their achievements and contributions to the society. The most inspiring part of her achievement is that her company, Main One Cable is the first company to build a private submarine cable that runs through Portugal, Ghana and Lagos, branching units in Morocco, Canary Islands, Senegal and Ivory Coast. She saw the need for better internet services in Nigeria, and she met that need. Currently, Main One boasts of a broadband service that is faster than your average; the fastest in the country. It may also interest you that Main One cable has signed more than 100 customers across Africa. How amazing! Despite the fact that she is a “woman” (not thinking of the philosophy of the society about women) she made waves, through Focus, Hardwork and Determination. So GO for your dreams, because I might have to write about your achievements too.
