List of SMEs in Nigeria

What is SME?

SME meaning is Small and Medium-scale Enterprises. According to the Central Bank of Nigeria, a SME is a company that employs from 11 to 100 people and has assets between ₦5 and ₦500 million. There are a lot of SMEs in Nigeria, so if we were to list them all, you would have to take a few days off just to go through such a list.

For this reason, we have decided to highlight the popular SMEs. All the information for this post was taken from the ConnectNigeria’s Top 100 Emerging SMEs list. If you want to see all of the nominations and cast your vote for the worthiest ones, click here.
