Welcome to Arete For Businesses. I am Mofoluke Akiode, I’m on a mission to empower entrepreneurs. My research interests are in the areas of transnational entrepreneurship, entrepreneurial ecosystems, and diaspora investments.
My journey into the fascinating world of entrepreneurship began with a BSc in Accounting, setting a solid foundation for my future endeavors. However, it was during my time working as a banker that my interest in the international efforts of SMEs truly flourished. Witnessing the tireless efforts of small and medium-sized enterprises in navigating international waters sparked a deep curiosity within me.
Eager to explore the dynamic interplay between businesses in a global context, I pursued a Master’s in Management and International Business. This journey allowed me to gain invaluable insights into how businesses operate across borders, fueling my passion to delve further into the realm of entrepreneurship.
I found my true calling with a Ph.D. that explored Transnational Entrepreneurship. This game-changing experience allowed me to immerse myself in studying the possibilities of improving the entrepreneurial landscape of my country through transnational activities of entrepreneurs and the challenges they face in the ever-evolving global market.
Now, my focus is on sharing my knowledge and experiences to help others thrive in the entrepreneurial landscape. That’s why I’ve set up this website. You’ll find bite-sized courses and articles covering everything from accounting essentials for entrepreneurs and startups to strategies for managing small businesses. Keep in mind that the website is a work in progress, and I’m constantly adding new content to serve you better.
