This was revealed by Farsity, organizers of the debut and annual event in Lagos over the weekend.
“The aim of the event is to inspire innovation and encourage entrepreneurship,” Elijah Shokenu a member of the organizing committee said, hence the theme for this year is ‘Entrepreneurship: Towards a Better Society.’
“This also explains why we had to get speakers and panelists who won’t be sharing textbook theories or principles they have not tested themselves,” Shokenu continued, adding that “We had to look for and get very successful entrepreneurs who can transfer knowledge and share their rich experiences with attendees.”
Mr. Nnadi noted that: “I’II be teaching participants how they can start and build multi-billion Naira businesses in today’s Nigeria. Gone are the days of certificate and mass employment. We are in the era of skills and self-employment and self-employment and for us to have a better society, the youth and the next generation has to be prepared for this challenge.
“We will be preparing them for this challenge at Skills innovation summit. Along with other speakers and panelist we will talk about studentship and entrepreneurship, mentorship and starting businesses on campus, the challenges and wins, and a whole lot more.”
