They will also connect with potential investors; get free business advice and more.

Agboade, founder of Growth Lab Africa while speaking about the conference, said “on our continent and especially in our country today, the failure rate of businesses gives cause for concern. The situation is more worrying when you realize that the failure of a business is very often a sentence to a suboptimal life for an entire family as well as a group of friends who also rely on that business to succeed for their daily survival. It is to this end that the Growth Lab Africa is putting together this one-of-a-kind business conference specifically targeted at helping, businesses grow and scale.”

Other speakers at the conference include Anderson UvieEmegbo, senior faculty at China Europe International Business School (CEIBS), Yemi Faseun, head human resources and interim chief operating officer of FBN Quest Merchant Bank, Fernando Madeira, the chief financial officer of ENYO Retail and Supply, Adenike Adeyemi, executive director of FATE Foundation and George Ogbonnaya, group head Corporate Banking of FCMB Plc.
