Entrepreneurs are frequently thought of as national assets to be cultivated, motivated, and remunerated to the greatest possible extent. Great entrepreneurs have the ability to change the way we live and work. If successful, their innovations may improve standards of living, and in addition to creating wealth with entrepreneurial ventures, they also create jobs and contribute to a growing economy.
To celebrate the Global Entrepreneurship Week, we will be having a fireside chat with Emeka Ossai, a foremost thought leader in Ibadan and the Chief Community Builder of Campus Labs, to discuss in detail how entrepreneurship can drive our local economy forward.
Stop by Wennovation Hub on the 24th of November for the opportunity to broaden your knowledge of entrepreneurship, ask questions & network with the rest of the Ibadan startup community!
