Panel 2: Supporting Entrepreneurs

A number of organizations in Nigeria have taken up initiatives to support young entrepreneurs from Microsoft to the Tony Elumelu Foundation. The list is commendable.

We will also look at initiatives that seek to empower women entrepreneurs noting that women comprise more than 50% of the workforce in Nigeria. Q & A to follow.
