What People are saying about Ikere Innovation School
My decision to come to Ikere was a giant leap and it was not taken in a hurry, I had deliberated on severally, the decision was not an easy one to make, the thought of leaving my comfort zone where I was just getting acclimatised to, to what lies in Ikere... My first week at IIS was awesome, I’m not only learning how to code, I’m learning how to run a start-up and what it takes to be a business owner. I’m also learning how to build spiritual prototype before building the physical projects and that is very important. I’m getting an all-round innovation and I can boldly say I’ve been learning what takes many people months or years to learn on a platter of gold.
IIS has been great. I have developed spiritually, intellectually and socially. I have always been a big dreamer viewing life all the way at the top but you know in all this, mentor-ship really matters and being under a mentor has sprung up more desire for greatness in me. I have found out that all these can only be acquired through hard work and determination. My watch word: In rainfall or sunshine, no matter what happens I remain committed to learning and mastery.
I must say "I learnt a lot". Thanks for your patience, friendliness and hospitality. I must confess that the months spent at IIS, Ikere-Ekiti were more pleasant and fulfilling than my five (5) years at FUTA, Akure.
I might not be the greatest programmer, but I believe that I will be a great man, as I've had the opportunity to see into myself here.
