Galilei Wedding Makeup Business
Our mission as a group, is to help small business owners in Nigeria improve, expand, and innovate their businesses, and to lend a hand to those that live in less fortunate regions of the world. We see the value and the great amount of difference helping a small wedding and makeup business can cause, allowing the business and community to prosper in the months and years to come. We promise to put our best foot forward and use our time and dedication to promote a positive change in this community.
Our vision is to help Rita advertise her wedding and makeup business using more innovative methods. Such as using promotional deals, advertisement in local markets, partnerships with local businesses, and building her brand starting with improvements to her logo and brand visual. With doing so, this will allow more income for Rita and her family while also eventually raise employment.
Throughout the process of solving Rita’s Wedding and Makeup business, we as a team are putting our best abilities into action. Therefore we continue to keep collaborating together, so that we may have the honor to represent Rita. We do this by presenting business plans with the most vital respect, care and core values that we and Rita have set. It is our goal to produce a solution with thorough research that will benefit her and her customers. In addition, we believe that not only are we helping a business.. however we are creating relationships that are all the way across the world, and we are making every necessary step to truly change lives.. And that is why we are here today.
See how each day at the summit we are gaining new skills to assist our business partner and transform lives.

Story of the Business:
Rita began the make-up business as an undergraduate in university. She had always loved to make people look nice. She started out by simply preparing her friends for class, parties, weddings and other events. She was inspired when she read about a female Nigerian business tycoon Tara Fela-durotoye, who is currently making millions from the beauty industry she started just by making up friends, in a magazine. In 2013, Rita officially turned her knack into a business. Rita Michael is a 24 year old graduate. She is the first born of her family. She has always been a very creative young lady and her creativity has given her an advantage in her business. She has been able to glamorize quite a number of brides for their weddings and has even travelled to neighbouring states for other brides. Rita is a very driven young lady and her great and distinctive touch has given her several business referrals from her old clients.
Rita has been able to train others and some young friends in the same business, and has been able to help with the education of two of her siblings.
How We Are Transforming Wedding Makeup Business
And Changing The World
After discussing with Ms. Rita the problems she faces with her business, we narrowed the solutions down to three area-based ideas. These solutions are intended to improve her advertisement, efficient makeup techniques, and customer service.
To solve the issue of needing better advertisement, our team has designed a new logo. Our new logo will be pleasing to the eye and will go well on t-shirts, flyers, and business cards. These advertisements will include her contact information and deals Ms. Rita offers. We will also supply Ms. Rita with a sign in sheet in order to obtain her customers’ information and notify them during special deals from her mobile phone. We also plan on implementing the idea of setting up a kiosk at the local festivals, in order to attract attention to her business.
Our next solution involves different makeup techniques. We will supply Ms. Rita with a booklet that shows more tips and tricks and step-by-step directions to do forms of makeup. This will also Include ways to clean her brushes.
We love that Miss Rita naturally has great values when it comes to customer service. And we aim for quality service but luxury treatment. This includes offering refreshment like lemon water and other small matters.
We hope to inspire and work together with Ms. Rita and these solutions are only the first step.
