Daystar empowers entrepreneurs to tackle economic challenges

…set to hold bootcamp

As part of efforts to support business owners in cushioning the effects of the increasingly challenging economy, the business community of Daystar Christian Centre is putting together a business bootcamp to empower operators of small businesses.

“We are in dire economic times globally, and these have a harrowing impact on most businesses,” said Sam Adeyemi, senior pastor of Daystar in a statement.

“For over a decade, Daystar Business Academy (DBA) has empowered countless business owners. Recognising the current economic challenges, we are bringing our DBA alumni, DBC members and entrepreneurs, and business owners from the wider society to this intensive two-day bootcamp,” Adeyemi said.

According to him, the Daystar Business Community (DBC) is a vibrant community of faith-driven business leaders united by a common purpose – to be role models for economic and social transformation.

He noted that their creed is that business can be a force for good, creating prosperity and opportunity for all.

Also, Blessing Ayemhere, head of DBC, said that “the upcoming business bootcamp is a unique opportunity designed to equip participants with the tools they need to thrive in today’s complex economic climate.”

“This Bootcamp is designed for both startups and established businesses.”

The boot camp, themed “Blossoming Through Chaotic Times,” is scheduled for June 27 – 28, 2024, at Plot A3C, Ikosi Road, Oregun, Ikeja, Lagos.

Expected speakers include Gabriel Ogbechie, GMD, Rainoil Limited; Akinwande Ademosu, co-founder, Bravewood Limited; Gbenga Afolabi, group CEO, Hazon Holdings and Comfort Aruosa-Osemwegie, founder/CEO, DealRoom Global. Also featured in the just concluded pre-boot camp event is Femi Adeoti, GMD/co-founder of Routelink Group.

Through interactive workshops, expert-led sessions and hands-on exercises, participants will learn practical strategies to overcome challenges and leverage opportunities in the VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) environment, and receive actionable tools to optimise business operations, manage finances effectively, and identify new growth opportunities.

Participants will also enjoy connections: network and collaborate with fellow entrepreneurs, fostering knowledge sharing and peer learning among others.

“My healthcare business got a clearer perspective after attending the academy, and the business tools given to us helped put my business structure and systems in order,” Motunde Sokoya, an alumnus of DBA shared his experience.

Another alumnus, Sylvester Obi, said, “With the help of the facilitators and mentors at the DBA, I was able to create a detailed and applicable business plan that brought a quantum leap to my business growth.

The forthcoming business bootcamp will enable participants to navigate these chaotic times and blossom as a community. Intending participants need to register through https://bit.ly/dba-bootcamp. For more information and registration details, an email can be sent to [email protected].
