“Always provide a fantastic service”

On today’s episode, we have Kendall Ananyi, co-founder of Tizeti which operates as Wifi.com.ng

Wifi.com.ng provides unlimited uncapped internet to users for less than $25 per month.

Kendall has an interesting story.

He has studied as an engineer and has worked with ExxonMobil, Microsoft, and PricewaterhouseCoopers.

He started Wifi.com.ng in order to solve a personal problem. He wanted unlimited and fast internet.

He was told by experts that the idea wasn’t going to work. He was resisted by few people. He had big competition along the way. And he turned turn down $1m funding from a VC because the terms weren’t right.

He then bootstrapped to a significant revenue before getting into Y Combinator accelerator programme.
