The Theme for this month is “Quit the noise, Have a voice”

Also speaking at this meetup is Abel Ekele, the cofounder of Trivoda Digital. He will be sharing with Entrepreneurs “The Future of Marketing - The importance of building a strong brand following driven by influence as opposed to conventional advertising” in the Learning Curve section of the event.

In addition to the great learnings Entrepreneurs will gain, there will be a portrait session for all founders as we partner with The Photocentric to create The Largest photo archive of Startup founders in Nigeria. It is not news that founders rarely have great portraits of themselves but together we can change this narrative.
