Like many great enterprises, NOVEL Nigeria started just as an idea was developed for over 4 years. The desire not to build a mediocre and a hand-to-mouth enterprise motivated, and made the NOVEL vision a bigger and global one. NOVEL Nigeria officially began commercial service on 1st September, 2016 with a team of two (Kingsley Ndimele and Olanrewaju Jegede).
Growing as an infant company, we were seen as ‘unserious grasshoppers’ that will not amount to anything much. Kingsley Ndimele founded the company as an undergraduate (Part 2) in the Department of Agricultural Economics, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State. He started with just a Canon 600D Digital Camera. HHe was closely supported by his roommate, Olanrewaju Jegede (A Part 4 student in the Department of Management and Accounting, Obafemi Awolowo University), who later became the Production Manager (2016 – 2018) of NOVEL Nigeria.
Amidst criticisms and persecution, the growth rate and consistency of the company has been overwhelming. Today, NOVEL Nigeria enjoys a high level of brand loyalty. On the 9th November, 2017, NOVEL 1095 BIZFIELD became a registered business name with the Corporate Affairs Commission of the Federal Republic of Nigeria with BN: 2554559. In October 2018, we successfully trained over 50 undergraduates who enrolled in our Training Institute. Every day, we climb one step higher in the event industry.
