Capital Fellowship, initiated by Kennedy Ekezie, has announced the launch of its inaugural Fellowship programme for small business owners in Nigeria.
The Capital Fellowship provides free capital, bespoke mentorship, and access to a network of resources to small business owners in Nigeria to enable them to grow quickly and sustainably.
Traditionally, small business owners in Nigeria have often been left behind when it comes to receiving the appropriate resources and networks to grow quickly and sustainably.
The fellowship is a one-month program, where small business owners get connected to high-achieving mentors who support them with overall business strategy, receive small seed funding, and access to a network of partners and resources while they grow.
