Empowering Women in Business: Celebrating International Women's Day

Every year on the 8th of March, the whole world celebrates International Women's Day (IWD). It is always a reminder of not just how women worldwide have continued to break the glass ceiling and achieve great things, but also a reminder of how much farther behind women still are, not just in politics and business but also in terms of social justice, body autonomy, and human rights. It is therefore apt that the theme for this year’s celebration is “Invest in Women: Accelerate Progress.”. A theme like that is a reminder of the often-mentioned maxim: “It is logical that when you invest in a demography that is half the world, the progress is going to be significant.” As Nigerians, we can go on and on about Nigerian women within and outside the country who are making a difference in various spheres of influence. In finance, politics, sports, fashion, and entertainment, the list is endless. It has been confirmed over and over again that women not only contribute to the global economy with

How PropHandler is Helping Nigerian Landlords Make More Money In 2024

  The real estate business in Nigeria, particularly the housing and property markets, has become extremely profitable in recent years. With the rise in tech jobs leading to individuals having a higher disposable income to pay for housing (a recent study by Professions(dot)ng noted that the number of workers from home increased in Nigeria after 2020 , and this led to people willing to pay higher for comfortable housing). Right now, the property market is a seller’s market, and landlords have a chance to smile to the bank more than they ever had at any other point in Nigeria’s history. Unfortunately, landlords have not been able to realize full value on their properties due to several factors, such as, maintenance issues, and tenants who knowingly or unknowingly mismanage the property and bring down its value. For example, it is common for a Nigerian landlord to build a rental property in a different city from where they live and not be able to monitor the house as they should. This lead

Intern Spotlight: My amazing experience as an Edgetechies Business Analyst by Adetoun Adepoju

I started my 12-week internship with Edgetechies as a Junior Business Analyst a few months ago. So far, the experience has been absolutely incredible. My internship was slated to begin in April 2022, and all work was to be done remotely. I was constantly looking for internship jobs at the time, so when the chance presented itself, it came just in time. I've done remote internships before, but I had no idea that working with Edgetechies would give me an unparalleled experience. Even though I always performed well when such occasions arose, I had always enjoyed working behind the scenes and avoiding any type of spotlight. It continued to be a significant deal for me.
