DOMESTICO STORY

Dec 2013 - Business plan

Domestico was established from a business plan I submitted during my MBA at Lagos Business school in 2013

Our value proposition was to enable customers  buy affordable top quality furniture from excellent furniture makers using  their mobile devices  while helping Local Carpenters get more customers which would improve their standard of living.

While we handle the quality assurance, guarantee, returns, customer care services , marketing and shipping
