The founder of Lagos SME, Ayo-Bankole Akintujoye, said the LSME incubation programme will be offering small business owners in Nigeria capital to aid their operation and growth within their sector.
During previous editions of LSME programme, participants were offered only educational seminars where various business strategies on operational and risk management are thought by seasoned business leaders in Nigeria.
The likes of Nairabet's Akin Alabi, Co-founder of PiggyVest, Joshua Chibueze, Partner and Chief Economist of PwC, Andrew Nevin, founder of Money Africa, Tosin Olaseinde and Nkiru Olumide-Ojo, the Regional Head, Marketing & Communications for Standard Bank Group, have shared their business expertise with participants in past editions.
Aside from the capacity building sessions, this year's event will feature working capital for lucky participants. He made this known during a Facebook live interview with Digital Talks on Legit TV.
This means LSME will not only be bridging the gap between small businesses and needed strategies to operate a successful enterprise in Nigeria's complex business environment, the growth hub foundation will also support SMEs within the country financially.
The seminar will continue to equip young entrepreneurs with effective solutions to improve their business growth, especially during this post-COVID-19 period, as SMEs are still struggling to recover from the negative impact of the pandemic and lockdown.
