We are FTBS

About us

FTBS was established to help businesses improve their workflows, scale up and ultimately ramp up revenue by using information systems. A young startup with a focus on cloud computing solutions is who we are.

Why cloud computing? Because quality infrastructure at affordable prices is great for the businesses in West Africa's emerging market.

History continues to show there’s power in the electronic transmission of information and our mission is to leverage that power to help businesses grow.

We chose a name that constantly reminds us of our mission, just as fertilizer acts like a catalyst for a good harvest we believe our system deployments act as a catalyst for improved profits. 

Our Team

We are a team of  analysts and technologists with educational backgrounds that span the globe (primarily US, UK and Nigeria) as well as technology experience in key industries.

Prior to joining FTBS,  members of our team served in roles such as:
  • Managing developers tasked with building a clearing house system for derivative trades between Goldman Sachs (New York) and other wall street firms
  • Deployment of voter registration systems for INEC (hey don't judge us, he didn't choose the technology, but he helped hold it together) 
  • Establishing a fashion brand from scratch including building out local and international retail channels for the brand. Did we mention we're a diverse bunch?

We set the highest ethical and moral standards for our employees. We do this because we intend to be great and to stand the test of time. Some things in life should be perceived in black and white (right or wrong), our business ethics is one of them.
