We are excited to present you with the annual SME Economy Conference and Award, themed “Tech Governance Funding”. For far too long, the SME ecosystem has been forgotten and this has hampered economic growth up till now. There is absolutely no reason why tech cant drive African businesses; there is no reason why government cant invest massively on developing the SME sector; and there is no reason why access to funding for startups should be almost impossible. It is time we deal with these issues. This 3rd edition of the project calls out to all the major players in the emergence of a very viable, solid and vibrant SME Economy from government to the private sector and the media.
This year’s event will for the first time feature a major award ceremony that will recognize outstanding SMEs who are innovating ideas that are changing Nigeria’s economic trajectory and also recognize stakeholders in government and private who have contributed meaningfully to strengthen and power the sector.
Event holds on the 27th and 28th of October, 2018, with 3000+ expected delegates coming from across Nigeria, robust media engagement, streamed worldwide and trending on social media, this will be the most talked about project in the startups ecosystem in Nigeria and beyond.
