Fashion Amazon of Africa- Dressmeoutlet.com on Friday March 3, 2017 celebrated her Founder/CEO; Mrs. Olatorera Oniru who is an exemplary leader, a driving force to be reckoned with in the African e-commerce scene, an outstanding keynote speaker and advocate of women empowerment and women in leadership across borders.
The Nigerian woman who is building the Fashion Amazon of Africa is ’30 and Fabulous’ with numerous accolades from local and international media organizations and awards shows. Olatorera Oniru is currently leading initiatives to realize a pinnacle in Africa history where we would rely less on importation and more on our natural resources. She travels across Africa, into rural communities and more in search of idiosyncratic fashions and eclectic designers to retail on the site. She has plans to source in China, UAE, South Africa, Ethiopia and more in the next coming months.
Before starting out as an entrepreneur, Olatorera worked as head of sales governance for Fortune 5000 company Ericsson, focusing on the Sub-Sahara African region. She also worked with Merrill Lynch as a senior analyst and with General Electric as a financial management intern. If her work foundation isn’t impressive enough, as is her education: graduating Cum Laude Honors Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and Management from North Carolina A&T State University and an MBA in Finance, Leadership, and Management from Emory University. She founded DressMeOutlet from her personal savings and has a personal runway to successfully finance the business for up to the next 5 years.
There is a lot in store for Dressmeoutlet.com. While Olatorera will continue to provide the best fashion and beauty products, they want to continue to grow and enter new territories, increasing their supplier database and multiplying the amount of customers they service.
Olatorera encourages young African entrepreneurs by telling them, “Push your dreams further, don’t let anything/anybody stop you from doing something great in the world” “Please do it. Go out there and do it, one step at a time, one day at a time, one handshake at a time, one clap at a time, one achievement at a time.” Olatorera is leading by example and her tenacity and strategic abilities will grow Dressmeoutlet.com exponentially as they continue to be a major player in the African e-commerce market.
