Venia Group launches state of art co-working space in Lekki


Venia Group has launched its second business hub, a new enabling environment for Lagos’ Start-ups and SME community.

The  Venia Business Hub has, in the last 4 years since the launch of the first one, been one of the driving forces in jumpstarting both home grown entrepreneurs and foreign businesses coming into Nigeria. The management said in a statement that most of the e-commerce companies seen today either started at Venia Hub or worked from there at some point.

“The new 120-Businesses capacity co-working space is equipped with tastefully furnished offices, fully kitted conference room with video conferencing services, kitchenette/cafeteria, private meeting rooms, high-speed internet, ample parking space and value-added services like front desk and business advisory services”.

Beyond being an infrastructure platform that connects entrepreneurs to office spaces, the Venia model is one that fosters job creation and enterprise building, not only within Nigeria but also across Africa, the statement said.

CEO of Venia Group (the parent company of Venia Hub), Kola Oyeneyin said in the statement it isn’t just providing desk and office spaces but enabling businesses by building a community of collaborators and co-creators.

“Our value proposition is simple- to kick start businesses by providing the best platform for growth, collaborations and partnerships. Members of our hub leverage  our affiliations with venture capitalist firms, vendors and network of contingent professionals within and outside the country”, said Oyeneyin.

As a company that takes care of many of the time-consuming hassles involved in setting up new businesses, VeniaBusiness Hub has cast itself as a new kind of workplace for the new era labor force.

“By providing affordable premium services to our members, we are giving them the opportunity to go about their jobs without having to worry about things like erratic power supply or Internet connectivity.

All you need to do is focus on doing business!”,Oyeneyin stated.

The new Venia Business Hub 2 is created to enable companies of different team sizes across diverse workforces ranging from start-ups to multinationals. It’s a place where the age-old notion of 9-5 is replaced by a novel concept where your startup or growing business gets the wings it requires to fly.
