The 7th Annual Aspire Conference is excited to bring to you Reuben Goodluck; a student,a leader and a young entrepreneur who has defiled all odds and created a solid business venture while in campus. Unlike most students, Reuben joined campus to acquire skills that would enable him to create employment opportunities. His experience is a testament that indeed there exists outliers that inspire their own generation.
Setting out at a young age has catapulted Reuben, the Founder & CEO of Capital-G Solutions– a Graphic Design and Branding company- to unthinkable heights. Reuben is a true manifestation of our theme this year “Monetizing your Passion“. His entrepreneurial journey traces back to 2014, when he attended the 4th Annual Aspire Conference where Robert Burale, one of the panelists shared his journey of success in business. The testimonial changed his life completely.
He started off by cooking and selling chapattis to his schoolmates. He later managed to purchase a printer with the proceeds he acquired from the chapatti business. As his name ,Goodluck, prognosticate;the opportunity of expanding the printing business from a side hustle to a company was actualized.
Today, his business is vital to organizations who understand the essence branding plays in digital marketing and the entire image of a company.
