I started my multi-million dollar business with ₦8250 — Yele Okeremi

When Yele Okeremi left his consulting job at Inlaks Computers in 1989, the banking sector was his least favourite place to end up, but he did anyway.

As serendipity would have it, the management of Industrial Merchant Bank was looking to replace foreign software with in-house alternatives and, as he grew into the role of CIO, Yele got first-hand exposure to “the secrets of software development”

“That was when I realised that we could do better than all those guys that came with briefcases from Europe. That’s why we started what we are doing today”, said Yele during a recent interview with Techpoint.

Soon enough, Yele left a promising career — not to mention an official Peugeot 505 STI — to start Precise Financial Systems (PFS), a multi-million dollar software development company that serves clients (mostly banks) in over 34 countries across Africa.
