Skyewise Group, a diversified integrated conglomerate providing world-class investment opportunities and services for individuals and corporate citizens, was founded in 2015 by its CEO, Dr. Elvis Abuyere. The company, based in Abuja, now owns and manages over five subsidiaries and affiliates, operating in three major states in Nigeria and one African country with an agency office in the UK and Canada.

The Group offers diversified services across a wide range of sectors including investment, credit management, real estate, automobiles, travel and tours packaging, contracts financing, and partnerships to a large and diversified client base that includes corporations, financial institutions, governments, and individuals.

The company started in 2013 as Skyewise Travels and Tours and became fully operational two years later.  However, with the advent of smartphones and loss of revenue from ticket sales when customers started buying tickets with their phones, tour packaging, involving taking tourists to different parts of the world, was added.

Not satisfied with the relative success of Skyewise Travels and Tours, Abuyere looked beyond tourism to spot a gap in the finance sector that needed to be filled. That gave birth to Skyewise Cooperative Finance, which has over 1,000 members.  The company has been able to build people and businesses, and enhance human capacity development in Nigeria, as well, especially in Abuja and Lagos where it has offices, and is being positioned to operate in the global space.

The third company that came on stream is Skyewise Automobile which provides luxury cars for high-net-worth individual and corporate clients that desire the ultimate in comfort. The company has one of the biggest showrooms in Abuja and is expanding into Lagos. It has one showroom in the nation’s commercial capital at the moment. Plans are afoot to open one of the biggest and most modern showrooms in the Lekki Phase 1 area of Lagos, any time from now.

There is also Skyewise Global Investment Services, a company that has been certified by the Securities and Exchange Commission to provide investment services. The company offers opportunities to both local and foreign investors to invest in the Skyewise Group.

With the diversification of interests, there arose the need to bring all the companies under one umbrella for easy and properly coordinated management. This thinking saw the coming into existence of the Skyewise Group in 2020.

Abuyere set up the Skyewise Empowerment and Advancement Foundation to satisfy a lifelong desire to leave behind a legacy of building people. The foundation raises people every month; it conducts training every quarter and also provides participants with some little seed capital to start up a business of their own. For the four years that the foundation was officially unveiled, it has been able to empower over 100 people who are doing well in the city of Abuja, Lagos, and across the country.

In monetary terms, the value of the Skyewise Group is estimated at over $4million. For the Founder/CEO, however, the real value of the group is not financial but the company’s ability to build sustainable investments – a value of integrity that would enable people to do business with the company and go to sleep, rest assured that their investments are safe and secure.

Apart from the many awards received by the Founder/CEO for building the Skywise Group, including the SME CEO of the Year 2021 given by Business Day Newspaper, the company won the Best Automobiles and Investment Brand award in 2022, given by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) and others.

The Group has become a household name in Abuja, Lagos, and some parts of the country, with a vision to be known all over Africa, and have branches in other parts of the world.

The selection of Skyewise Group by the Top10 Magazine as the Company of the Year is in recognition of its rising profile as one of the fastest-growing business concerns with tentacles in many sectors of the Nigerian economy.
