He also outlined the benefits of strategic partnerships to a growing business.
The summit is centered on enlightening MSMEs on platforms/agencies that can be leveraged on for business growth and expansion, as well as empowering the MSMEs to access single digit (government backed) loans by connecting them to fund sources (BOI & NEXIM Bank).
Marek Zmyslowski, Managing Director of Jovago Nigeria stated, “When you have a business that is less than 3 years old, don’t look for funding from banks, go to Venture Capitalists as they will be more likely to buy into your business vision and fund it.”
