We are set up by passion, driven by a goal, and fuelled by a vision
Shac & Bango was setup in 2019 to drive the implementation of SchoolMates.ng founded by Gabriel Esu and John Uzo.
CONCEPTION: In 2014, all we wanted to do was build a year-book for our alma mater to keep our secondary school experience alive:
CONVICTIONS: Over the next 4 years, we became convinced that we could actually create something bigger than a yearbook, and that all secondary schools, not just ours can benefit from.
ACTION: Based on our findings and feedback, we decided to take the leap of faith. In 2019, we incorporated Shac & Bango, christened our project Schoolmates, and set out on this Journey.
VALIDATIONS: In 2018, we decided to research into the Nigerian Secondary School Space to identify:
(1) The EdTech needs of this Market
(2) How we can create a product that meets that need
