Every book has a beginning and each chapter of that book has a different story or direction. This is what makes a book interesting and captures the minds of the readers. In telling The RootHub story, it would probably be a story of perseverance, passion, service, and victory, sprinkled with the numerous losses, downtimes, and challenges that makes a story a good one. Books achieve certain effects, such as moving us, inspiring us to wonder, or ultimately, to motivate one. The intricacies of running a business in Nigeria with the myriad challenges life throws at us, is our story.
An idea that emanated from bringing different young people together in one space has grown to accommodate more than just the young, physically and virtually. It has become a movement of sorts, with the focus on providing a sound foundation for the members to build upon in their chosen career paths. The Roothub has expanded its boundaries to service the youths of the Niger Delta region of Nigeria, through various projects and initiatives focused on changing the negative narratives.
