#ProjectCEO: Learn Business Development & Fund Generating Strategies



#ProjectCEO is an annual business development class/pitch contest hosted by yours sincerely - Silas Ozoya to raise 10 entrepreneurs.

This idea is to help newbies build their business from scratch and help existing entrepreneurs (SME owners) grow their business exponentially using our business development and fund generation strategies.

We know for sure that across Africa a lot of Small and Medium Scale Enterprises (SMEs) have flawed business models and fund generating strategies hence we hear the complaints of poor funds or lack of capital as causes of failures. Silas Ozoya through his business community- StartUp Business Africa (SUBA), Africa has mapped out ways to curb this menace in the Startup and SME circle of intending and existing entrepreneurs. The goal at the end of each #ProjectCEO session is to; Have well-trained StartUp entrepreneurs with more robust business models and funding solutions for their SMEs. The strategy is to take all applicant through a StartUp Business Class that would teach; Business Development Strategies, Funding Strategies (Seed, Series A & B Funding), Emotional Intelligence, Self-Awareness, Business Networking, Marketing, Sales and so much more. After the class, students would be tested on what they've learned using a business strategy/pitch contest where the best amongst all wins a grant. In 2013 & 2015 respectively, a grant of N50, 000 was given out when the project was under another name - The Entrepreneur Contest. This year (2017), we have upgraded the program content and the Grant Prize to N200,000. This comes with a 6 months follow-up business development coaching with the host - Silas Ozoya. The class/contest would hold across the 4 major areas in Nigeria (East, West, South & North) every year in selected cities in  2 phases; First the Business Lunch - where Silas Ozoya alongside selected guest facilitators would share business development fund generating strategies. The second phase would be the Pitch Contest for the Grant Prize - N200,000 Targeted Cities this year are; Warri - May 6th, 2017 Port Harcourt - May 13th, 2017 Lagos - May 20th, 2017 & Abuja - May 27th, 2017 Lunch Time: 12noon - 3pm All intending participants are to REGISTER  with N2,000.
