As Nigeria grapples with an unsteady economy and ensuing challenges such as double digit unemployment rates, any hope for a turnaround depends mostly on entrepreneurs. In the light of this, entrepreneurship continuously comes under spotlight as the Federal Government looks up to the innovation and talent of these entrepreneurs to drive business growth and thus provide remedy for the chronic unemployment in the country.
Research tells us that Small/Medium businesses collectively provide more jobs than the public sector as well as multinational organizations put together. Developed economies are driven mainly by the private sector and specifically small and growing businesses. It is therefore necessary to encourage entrepreneurship development in Nigeria.
Nigeria Entrepreneurs Summit & Exhibition was hence instituted to inspire, empower, motivate and support Nigeria youths to rethink entrepreneurship in our fast changing world by exploring new approaches and fresh opportunities to Business Success. In doing so, we have become the premier national gathering of young entrepreneur and Business Leaders.
Our hands-on approach to raising a league of very successful entrepreneurs is evident in our robust initiative – The Nigeria Entrepreneurs Summit & Exhibition. The Nigeria Entrepreneurs Summit & Exhibition is designed for Entrepreneurs, next-generation Business Leaders who aspire to conduct their businesses in tandem with global best practices.
These entrepreneurs focus on creating value for all of their stakeholders and fulfilling the deeper purpose of their organization which is giving back to society and making it a better environment in which businesses can thrive.
The aim of this program is to support Nigerian Entrepreneurs on their ongoing journey of business excellence as renowned business leaders, industry giants and entrepreneur experts have been lined up to give them extensive training, while stimulating real life business challenges in the 21st century with pragmatic solutions for societal benefit and business success.
The idea behind the Nigeria Entrepreneurs Summit & Exhibition is to imbibe a culture of excellence in young and emerging business leaders and showcase thriving businesses in the Nigerian economy that will serve as model businesses for others to emulate.
We aim to showcase model businesses that have redefined how business is done in the Nigerian economy.
Participating Entrepreneurs will gain perspective on their own current business challenges, looking both at their personal styles and the global strategic context of their industries. Matching individuals with the best in the industries or sectors of interest will be our own strategic mechanism to guarantee value for all our participating Entrepreneurs.
