Ruff ‘n’ Tumble

Ruff ‘n’ Tumble is a children’s clothing and fashion brand founded by Adenike Ogunlesi in 1998.

Initially, the business operated from the boot of her car with a manpower of fewer than 20 people.

One day, Adenike Ogunlesi made $600 from this business, which is when she realized that she should go on to expand this business. For this reason, she enrolled at a business school, where she learned about marketing, customer service, and customer experience.

This allowed her to expand her children’s fashion and clothing business to one that operates with international standards, having about 17 outlets, more than 300 employees, and an online presence across Africa.
