Arinze Chilo-Offiah, Special Adviser on SME & Investment said “Enugu is happy to host the innovation community stakeholders from across the South-South/South-East at this summit. The SME Centre’s partnership is a reflection of the current aspirations of His Excellency Rt. Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi’s administration signalling that Enugu is more than ready for business. Enugu’s leadership is hugely motivated to energize the SME, creative and digital economy space.
On why they are hosting, Ekene Odum, Operations director at Genesys Tech Hub said, we are supporting this summit because at Genesys Tech Hub, we believe that collaboration achieves greater results than individual dispersed efforts can.
Speaking about the event, Uche Aniche – the Convener of #StartupSouth – said, this edition (following the first edition which was hosted by Oluaka Institute in Owerri in 2018) will afford ecosystem leaders the opportunity to reflect on the progress achieved so far and chart a new course for the regional innovation community in the new decade.
#StartupSouth believes in the power of entrepreneurship for development. We are a Startup/Entrepreneurship ecosystem development project focused on the South-South/South-East, Nigeria.
Our goal is to inspire a generation of young founders to build innovative and scalable businesses within the South-South and South-East regions. We educate, connect and attract funding to founders and Startups within the South-South/South-East, Nigeria.
