When in 2015 Evans Akanno founded Cregital, a creative and digital agency that helps brands make smart impressions, many wondered if his idea was viable enough to survive the hostile business environment in our clime.
Having worked for the biggest e-commerce platforms, Jumia and Konga, as social media strategist and creative strategist, with a team of four other persons, Evans ventured into the world of startups with his little savings.
Against all odds, two years down the line, Cregital has morphed into one of the most thriving startups in Nigeria with reputable clients like Zenith Bank, Dano, MultiChoice, Google, DSTV and a host of others.
That Cregital was awarded the Best Website Development Company of the Year by the Nigeria Technology Awards a year after it was established points to the giant strides it has made.
Evans’ success story will not be complete without mentioning that he taught himself graphic design using internet videos. In 2016, he emerged the Creative Professional of the Year award at the 2016 edition of The Future Awards Africa.
