The SME100 AFRICA said it had partnered with the Federal Ministry of Indus- try, Trade and Investment (FMITI) to train 100,000 young entrepreneurs.
The founder, SME100 AF- RICA, Charles Odii, stated this at the sixth edition of the Lagos Small Business Summit 2021. According to Odili, without a doubt the Lagos SME Business Summit has lived up to expectations helping small business owners with policies and resourc- es to start and run sustainable businesses in the last six years.
“This year summit is a timely response and finding solution around the challeng- es, opportunities and to chart a roadmap for growth and expansion for business owners in Lagos and Nigeria at large,” he stressed. He noted that this summit marks the beginning of another financial year for us in commemoration with the Global entrepreneur- ship week.
“The Global entrepreneurship week is a weeklong cel- ebration of entrepreneurship events and support initiatives held every year to encourage economic growth and inspire millions of people to begin their entrepre- neurial journey across the world,” he said.
According to him, we have inspired, empowered and engaged over 15,106 entrepreneurs in Nigeria in the last 12 months
