In 2016, the 22nd Nigerian Economic Summit provided a timely opportunity for a national economic review during the country’s worst recession in decades, while at the same time setting the “Made in Nigeria” agenda within the context of economic diversification and restructuring. For the most part, the Summit created a consensus amongst all Nigerians on the need for the country to significantly increase the level of productivity across all sectors.

NES #23 Startups Pitching Event

Opportunity to pitch
Many start-up entrepreneurs struggle to get the funds they need to grow their business and in some cases even require mentorship, professional advisory services, etc. Innovators and entrepreneurs from all over Nigeria would have an opportunity to pitch their start-ups and this is a platform for such businesses to collaborate and interact with individuals and organizations interested in promoting entrepreneurship and an opportunity to pitch to experienced investors and obtain great feedback and possibly capital. Each startup will have 5 minutes to pitch to prospective investors and 10 minutes to answer questions from them. It is expected that the Session will also connect the eight start-ups with venture capitalists and investors.
