KScopeWomen - Uty Akpan

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Get to know Uty

Kindness can be transformative. A volunteer experience might give you new ideas for a business or project. Helping another business owner or pairing up in a partnership may help you to better identify your own future business opportunities. Maybe it won’t teach you any of that and you’ll simply feel energized by being kind. Regardless, by helping others, you can grow as an individual.  

Uty Akpan is a Canada based Small Business coach and entrepreneur from Ika in the Akwa Ibom state of Nigeria, has dedicated herself to supporting entrepreneurs looking to move into the e-commerce space. It is very important business owners have access to the proper tools and knowledge at the very start of their journey so they are able to build a strong foundation that they can build on for the future.

She is currently working on an online course for launching on Shopify and increasing sales using Social media. While also running her own Shopify store, called Awuwuan, which specializes in women accessories and apparel such as handmade earrings that are receiving a lot of positive feedback from customers and they have just launched a new Spring collection!

As if that is not enough, she is also a business coach for entrepreneurs and she has pivoted to help christian entrepreneurs evangelize in their business. The main reason why this coaching program exists is because this is a christian’s  primary purpose. And with the right tools, resources and support, evangelism can be so much fun!


With her Podcast Dare For More her first session had so much positive feedback that she is launching the second session on the First of July, this podcast is available on Apple, Spotify, and a few other platforms for  Podcasts. Uty hopes that through the KScope community she will be able to reach more entrepreneurs who she can work with to take their businesses to the next level.  

P.S. did we forget to mention that she started an Instagram Live Series called “The Purpose Series”. 30 days of answering the questions that she receives from IG Live around Purpose. You can join her and  watch the replay everyday on my IG: @utyakpan 

A fun fact is that, Uty in some circles is regarded as a superwoman.  

“I love that KScope because it always reminds me of home and all the good food that my mom used to make. It is also a perfect directory for my small business and the community is exceptional. ” – Uty Akpan
