I am an Entrepreneur, Business Developer, Teacher and an Entertainment Freak.Every year I have a goal of raising 10 entrepreneurs. Through my coaching, mentoring and strategy sessions, I support at least one of every 10 with financial and practical business knowledge to either launch a new business (startup) or exponentially grow an existing one (SME). In 2013 “The Entrepreneur Summit" was launched. This is the background where I first started to coach startups and SMEs based on my experiences of building my companies; MADdotCOM Business Network and KampusTV NG. I discovered that motivation to start is not all but the actual support (knowledge and financial intelligence) are as important. The motivation to start is easy but the tenacity to continue is where practical knowledge comes into play so as to not leave the "motivated and inspired mind" wondering in the darkness of harsh realities making them give up half way. So I opted to provide intelligent solutions. As an experienced business developer and life coach, I have offered to support participants with Seed Capital/Business Funds through StartUp Business Cooperative. With my coaching knowledge and skills, we can work together for at least 90 days using the financial support gotten or their ideas. In 2013 and 2015 respectively, a participant (the new CEO) was given N50,000 at “The Entrepreneur Summit”as seed fund. This year, we are upgrading the platform to be bigger as we launch our own fundraising cooperative at the conference; StartUp Business Conference 2017 with the theme; “The Business of Skill” Date: Saturday, 15th July 2017 Time: 9am Sharp! Venue: ANEEJ Secretariat, Beside Total Filling Station off Airport Road, GRA, Benin-City To participate, Register HERE for FREE Unlike the previous years, this year’s edition of the StartUp Business Conference presents a bigger and better opportunity to mix, network and rub minds with not just me but very experienced hands in starting, building and growing a startup. As usual, I would not be doing this alone, I would be using the help of; Stella Adu,
CEO, Prolific Global ConceptsStella Adu is fondly called ProlificStella. She is a serial entrepreneur, a trainer, and a digital marketer. She basically TICS ( I.e. She trains, inspires, celebrate and supports vision driven individuals...). Her target audience is aged 15-36 years of age. Prolific Stella is the creative manager of Prolific Global Concepts: A dynamic company that trains, manufactures, and supplies cleaning agents such as multi-purpose liquid soap, disinfectant, insecticide, hair shampoo and conditional, bleach, hand wash and hand sanitizer, among others. Just a quick note here: One thing you need to know about Prolific Stella is that she is so PASSIONATE about helping vision-driven individuals to achieve their career dreams through her volunteering and digital marketing skills. And this has opened great doors and is still opening more greater doors of opportunity to affect lives positively as adding value is her core. She would be speaking/teaching at this conference.
