AND SO IT WAS – BAE!
When we started off on the BAEAfrica Project, one thing was on our minds, our purpose was singular in many words; we were determined ‘To provide a significant platform where African creative entrepreneurs can be empowered to upscale their operations, expand income generation strategy, get trained, get mentored and get out of poverty’.
Against the skepticisms of corporate Nigeria, against the odds of funding, against every obstacle that very often stand in the way of ideas for African startups, we went out there and we delivered.
We created a unique situation where creative entrepreneurs from all over Nigeria interfaced with consumers, got unique brand exposure via booth branding and interviews, and networked with themselves and a wide consumer base.
We had fun!
The Exhibition is the first phase of the BAEAfrica project and it was a huge success. Now we head to the second phase which is so critical for StartUps all over Africa. It is the first major Nigeria SMEs Conference; a one day of intense business war-room for SMEs. We will have core professional facilitations from captains of different key industries including Banking, Corporate Affairs, Law, Branding, Marketing Communications, Digital Marketing, Image Consulting, etc. We will also have Story Telling sessions from mentors across different business and corporate experiences.
We believe this is how we can grow as a nation and as a continent. It will be nice for you to join us too. Now lets build Africa.
