Meet the Founder: Oyéta Kokoroko
Oyéta is a professional skincare formulator, founder, editor, and aspiring thought leader.
Her first project, Okoko Cosmétiques was a self-financed effort launched in March 2016. Within the first year, Okoko Cosmétiques recouped its start-up investment and total revenue grew over 517% in its second year.
The initial Okoko line comprised 5 products including detoxifying and brightening face masks and serums, and a beauty balm. Since, Okoko has established a loyal international following with a return customer rate that increases year after year.
Today, the brand employs a dedicated, multicultural and multilingual team plus contractors and gives back by allowing select candidates to come for a paid internship with the brand.
Oyéta's goal is to inspire, empower and give back by sharing the knowledge with consumers, facilitating networking and helping other entrepreneurs rise and thrive.
“By showing courage and determination in the pursuit of your dreams, you have the ability to encourage other women to take risks, show initiative, and take on leadership roles.”
Recently, she launched her second project: The Connector ,
a networking and informative website for savvy entrepreneurs. The Connector is a resourced-filled platform that includes informative articles, business advice and networking opportunities for consumers and brands.
