Passionate about fruits and healthy living, Queen Onyekwere spends countless hours developing tasty and healthy fruit recipes.
Founded in 2017, Queens Fruits, makes delicious smoothies, juices, parfaits, fruit packs, and creative fruit arrangements.
The business which started from selling smoothies to friends and colleagues hopes to grow into a multi-million-naira health & fitness company.
Queen learned about Accelerate LABS through a colleague and immediately applied due to the value it offers.
Speaking of what she’s learned so far, Queen says: “I’ve learned a lot from the mentors and trainers. These are real-life business skills picked up from people who have done it themselves, and I’ve enjoyed applying those skills to my own business. Whereas previously I had learned some business theory, I’d never used it in the same way as I have at Accelerate LABS.”
“One of the most important parts of the courses was on ﬁnance— with Ifeoma Okonkwo, which taught me how to keep my books properly. I’ve used these methods for my own business,” she said.
Following her training on branding, marketing, finance, media for startups, and Microsoft Office tools, Queen looks forward to successfully completing the 12-week accelerator programme, and using the knowledge gained to scale her business.
