Many congratulations, Ayoola, from everyone here at Rise!

We had a chance to catch up with Ayoola and find out a little more about him, why he’s interested in Rise and what he plans to do with his N50,000 windfall.

I make videos. I’ve been doing this professionally for over 5 years now. I have mostly worked full-time in digital publishing/brand studios. Although, I am still able to take up side gigs recording podcasts, shooting videos and working on other interesting stuff.

I have followed CashEstate since it was first featured on Zikoko’s NairaLife series, for most of the year, I couldn’t commit at once because ‘adulting in Lagos’.

With the new model as Rise however, I found an ideal blend of CashEstate mixed with mutual funds and a flexible investment opportunity in dollars, that was hard to pass up.

It’s interesting, but I’m actually looking to put the entirety of the money into my Rise account.

For 2020, I’m hoping to raise cash to start a business that doesn’t involve me staring into a screen.

Possibly structure my mom’s food business.

What my investment could look like if I delay cashing out for 5/10 more years. That’ll help to put things in context a whole lot.

We have more fantastic stuff in store for everyone on the Rise waitlist. Because you’ve chosen to be a part of our journey, we want to show you love in every possible way we can.
