offer are not yet available in our community . For those available, I intend to bring in a better approach to improve on the quality of the services. One other thing is to be able to create jobs for others.
My ideal customer is the general public. Given that I have several services which cut across basic aspects of life, involving every caliber of persons, from educational to business solutions, and value added services to those who are not students nor business owners.
What products or services does your business provide?
Aeco Ltd offers Education Services, Business Representation, Event planing and
Buea is a small town, but growing at a very fast rate. As a start up, I think starting in Buea will be the ideal thing as to grow my business since the town itself is growing. Again, when it comes to education in Cameron, the best place to carry out a test and be able to have good results is Buea, and still the best to introduce change in the education system of the country. Also, in Buea I will be exposed to the right technology expertise I need to build my services.
How big is your team, and are you looking at hiring more employees?
My current team size is 8. But as days go by the number keeps adding with new deals being signed for business representation and should we succeed with the product we intend to launch for business representation, then in the long term we should employ about 1/10 of the worlds population.
What’s your revenue model?
Our revenue model differs from service to service. For business representation, our main source of revenue comes from commissions we receive from sales of our representative’s products or services. For event planing and conferences – we get paid for our services by those who hire them. Our education services are more of free services, the department is supported by our other services and we intend to get sponsors and fundings .
Our services and products are readily available apart from our tech services which are still under construction. As soon as the construction work is done, the service automatically becomes available at all times for our customers. All our other services are already available and always available 24/7 for our customers.
Currently in our education service we do not have any competitor as the service we are bringing in is not yet available in the current educational system. For business representation, there are some people who are offering the service. But as I mentioned earlier, they are doing the opposite of what we want to do, which is to promote local producers service providers by representing them to markets and sell their products and services home and abroad. For our event planing and conferences, we have lots of competitors, like hotels and other service companies who are offering these services but with the standard we offer we will stand out amongst the many.
Our main set back has been lack of finances to enable us run at full scale.
