Nigerian entrepreneur, CEO, and founder of Veritasi Homes and Properties Limited Adetola Nola has been listed among the Forbes 2019 30 Under 30 list. Adetola Nola joins 29 other exceptional leaders in the business catego
The list for this edition of Forbes Africa 30 Under 30 list for 2019 was announced at the annual Forbes Africa Under 30 Meet-Up in association with Kingdom Business Network (KBN) at the Houghton Hotel, Johannesburg. And four Nigerian innovators shaking up some of the world’s stodgiest industries made the business categories.
“It’s an honor to be part of the Forbes list that features so many great people. Forbes has done an awesome job compiling and ensuring the authenticity of this list since inception, and it’s a leading resource for entrepreneurs like myself.” He said.
His leadership led to exceptional growth at Veritasi. The company has progressed from one staff to over 12,000 real estate consultants, 1300 Veritasi Homes realtors, and 18 full-time staff within 3 years.
“Building a trusted brand is about impacting value. We are designing a system that tackles the housing problem for the low and middle-income earners in Nigeria; we are also building a firm where people are happy to come to work every day, and where they can do great work and have a big impact, says Mr. Nola.
Before starting Veritasi Homes and Properties, Nola was a real estate sales consultant at Grenadine Homes – after recording a plethora of success in sealing property deals and facilitating real estate projects, he established Veritasi in 2015.
Starting his entrepreneurial journey, Nola established and co-founded five other companies including Couture 89, Pineapples Luxury Retail Store and Noah & Nola Incorporated amongst others. Apart from Veritasi, he is also the Founder/Chief Strategy Officer of Nola Travels; an organization he started with the aim of helping unemployed graduates.
Having failed in business countless times, he is passionate about helping other businesses succeed. While trying to achieve this, Mr. Nola trains batches of at least forty realtors and entrepreneurs on financial intelligence and business every Thursday since November 2018 in his office. He is also a strategic investor with investments in the automobile industry, fashion and agriculture.
“Mr. Nola has always had a preference for entrepreneurship. We met as undergraduates, and he got an award as the Most Enterprising Student during his days in Obafemi Awolowo University”, says Tobi Yusuf – Veritasi Homes and Property Marketing Manager.
