Abuja’s young entrepreneurs get to ‘connect’

Global Shapers Community is bringing together Abuja’s young innovators to network and inspire.

Young entrepreneurs and professionals based in Abuja will gather at the Bamboo, on Thursday, September 27, to ‘network, mingle and share ideas’ as part of the Global Shapers Community, an Initiative of the World Economic Forum.

The event, aptly tagged “CONNECT,” according to the spokesperson of the Global Shapers, Abuja Hub, Joycee Awojoodu, is aimed at young people who are exceptional in their potential, their achievements and their drive to make a contribution to their communities.

“I am particularly excited about the ‘CONNECT’ event because of the opportunity to bridge the networking gap and link young vibrant minds together, who are often times not, if it is not deliberate. There are so many young entrepreneurs, SA’s, young professionals in the public and private sectors who are doing big things but their work is not known by the community-at-large.”

“Connect’ provides a forum for young progressive professionals to share ideas and create relationships; and this directly correlates to the Abuja Shapers Mission: to tackle challenges through innovation while nurturing a progressive community that is changing the image of Nigeria,” she said.

Ms. Awojoodu also said the Abuja “Connect” platform will be the premiere avenue for mobilising young professionals with the greater goal of making an impact on Abuja and Nigeria-at-large.

The purpose of Abuja “Connect” is to enhance business relationships and creating strong connections.

“When you provide ways for people to interact, it’s possible to achieve results that transcend the boundaries of traditional marketing and advertising. We are providing a space where young entrepreneurs can exchange ideas and experiences.

“This Platform aims to connect and expand our business community. This will not only create wealth but also unlock innovation potential through collaboration and resource sharing,” Ms. Awojoodu said.

At the Abuja hub, the benefits achievable are threefold: Connect– mingle with valuable contacts and increase your network & net-worth; Inspire– by sharing ideas and resources and, Grow– by creating new business opportunities & career advancement.

“The idea is that with “CONNECT”, there will be increased awareness and relevance of the hub to provide a database of Abuja’s upwardly mobile youth, making as a resource for corporations and organisations and also enables us to fulfill our mission; to tackle challenges through innovation while nurturing a progressive community that is changing the image of Nigeria,” Ms. Awojoodu concluded.
