Skysat’s business plan for start-ups

Skysat’s business plan for start-ups

About three years when Skysat Technologies Nigeria Limited launched its business plan for start-ups in printing business across the country, it took the industry by surprise going by the assistance it rendered to small printing businesses.  The business plan, which was aimed at assisting small time printers to grow their businesses with cost-efficient printing machines, accessories, and trainings kick-started a revolution in the business.

It has, today, resulted in the establishment of a high number of digital print shops across Nigeria that have immensely contributed in the creation of employment for young people, and impacting positively on the socio-economic development of the country.

Besides, the company, which is a preferred partner and distributor of Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe in Nigeria and Ghana, has outlets and service centres in Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt and Kano where German-trained engineers provide expertise, training and technical support to their customers in printing business.
