Starting up a business with your university dorm mate

Young entrepreneurs Roy Kimani and James Hakesley met during the first week of university. Having played around with video cameras to make some extra money while studying, the duo have now launched their own company - a video platform designed for businesses.

Fresh from the launch of their video platform for businesses, nideo founders Roy Kimani and James Hakesley are trying to provide an online alternative to options such as YouTube. The two are on a mission to educate business owners about the value of using video to promote their message.

The two business builders first used free university equipment to create a fledgling venture, and then received a surprise and unsolicited approach for their new company.
