Solesi made the call at a 2-day LIMBsimple strategy growth conference, which started in Lagos, on Monday, saying that business owners need robust entrepreneur education to better understand the dynamics of staying in business while also paying attention to extant regulations that have a direct impact on their business environment and profitability.

“Government should increase business education. If the government spends money educating people who have registered businesses that there is a mandatory course on taxation, then the entrepreneur starts his business knowing that,” Solesi said.

LIMBsimple is an acronym for Life, Investing, Business, and Money made Simple. It is a management consulting firm aimed at teaching proven business secrets to help businesses grow into formidable enterprises.

Solesi said the organisation was set to coach about 100 businesses to attain a yearly turnover of N1 billion by 2027.
