In 2015 when Velvot opened its doors to the world, its goal was unequivocal: offer the finest and most cost-effective tech solution. This mission birthed Velvot 1.0, an innovative venture that displayed indisputable fervour which drove it to within one year of inception, in 2016, secure the Microsoft Gold Partner for SMBs. This fuelled our drive and spurred us to work even harder to meet our clients’ needs, leading us to in 2017, begin to offer our custom applications solution across industry verticals. As the company began to establish itself as a go-to tech company for variegate industry players, organisations, as well as individuals,  Velvot 1.0 was incorporated as a Limited Liability company in 2018, while also launching our now famous Velvot store, the one-stop-shop for all things software and hardware. Velvot 1.0 in no time established itself as a major player in the Nigeria tech market, and in 2019, was upgraded to Microsoft Tier-1 Cloud Solutions provider for the whole of Africa. We seized this rare opportunity which underscored our vision to be the preferred digital strategy partner by using tech intensity for the entire IT ecosystem of Africa, and by 2020 we had expanded our reach to 49 African countries. Across the years, we gained notable awards, commendations, and official recognitions. Velvot 1.0’s growth might have seemed magical to some, but for us, it was the result of hard work paying off. However, hard work it is often said, beget more work. Velvot 1.0 understood this well, never letting up even as we expanded our services and reached new countries, including Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ghana, and Mauritius. It wasn’t long before we earned authorization as a Sophos Tier Partner. 

The company which began with the founder selling recharge cards, charging phones, and downloading mobile games using a simple N97 phone, grew to become a contending tech company in Africa. The transformation from those early days to what Velvot 1.0 became is truly a marvel and a testament of a grass-to-grace story. The founder, Mr Aliyu Garba has always emphasized that the success of Velvot 1.0 wasn’t just a tale of luck; but rather, a story rooted in innovation, constant brainstorming, and unwavering hard work. He always stressed the need to do more, and to ask, “how can we do it two times better”, thus Velvot 2.0.
