Tell us a few words about the founders and how the idea came
Greymate Care was co-founded by Ogochukwu Obi (COO), registered nurse with over 6 years experience, Chika Madubuko (CEO), astute business professional with experience from multinationals such as Amazon UK and Guinness Nigeria, and Remilekun Dosumu (CTO) who handles all the technology innovation within Greymate Care.
Greymate Care was born out of a personal pain experienced by one of the co-founders, Chika, whose family could not find time to care for their grandmother who had been bedridden due to diabetes. Even when they opted for a paid caregiver, it was difficult to find a regulated marketplace to find them and were exposed to safety and security risks as the caregivers had not been background checked nor trained.
