Business entrepreneurs and start – ups have been enjoined not to get weary but upgrade and rise above the present economic loom caused by the global Covid-19 pandemic disease.

Dr Stephen Akintayo, Executive Chairman, GText Homes Ltd stated this yesterday during the Upgrade Conference and launching of Stephen Akintayo Foundation and Book Presentation.

According to Dr Akintayo ” most business owners get weary within three years space of running their enterprise and is one of the reasons most start-ups and SMEs dont rise above a particular level, because they have not been able to carve a niche for themselves”
