SuperGeeks co-founders Edmund Olutu and Sam Uduma began their startup in 2014 after spotting a niche in the tech repairs market. Deciding to formalize a business normally conducted by market stalls in Lagos, Supergeeks has become a go-to resource for individuals and companies when their devices fail them.
A SuperGeeks employees busy at work on one of the 200 devices the company repairs monthly.
Today the founders employ 20 people in their workshop and generate $10,000 a month in sales.
Employee uniform bears the bold claim that "If we can't fix it, no one can." The company hopes to expand their operations into the after-sales market, partnering with big retail outlets.
Olutu and Uduma plan on starting the SuperGeeks Academy, an initiative to help unemployed Nigerians learn the skills and business expertise to work within the technology industry.
