Jonathan Majin is a young entrepreneur from Niger state. After spending two years in England studying A-levels, he was offered a full scholarship to study in America. Ironically this is where his passion for sports and especially football blossomed.
He is a graduate of Business and Economics from the Penn State University. While at College, he started his first business at the age of 19 in his second year. This was a bike sharing program to aid transportation for international students. In his final year, with a few friends, he began the Younix initiative.
Younix is an app company created with the goal of facilitating sporting activities in Nigeria. Jonathan was exposed to a culture that sports is an integral part of and he felt it was important to implement this kind of culture in his own country. He believes the continued growth and promotion of Nigerian products and services is one of the keys to progress.
