Emmanuel Olujobi, the Founder of Jasper SME Hub, emphasized the significance of the SME sector as a major contributor to Nigeria’s GDP. With a commitment to supporting the growth of 100,000 SMEs by 2025, the organization leverages programs, products, and partnerships, including initiatives like the upcoming SMEFest 2024.

Building on the insights gained from SMEFest 2023, where it was realized that “the biggest mistake small business owners make is thinking small,” SMEFest 2024 is poised to be a transformative experience.

Dr. Jumoke Oduwole MFR, the Special Adviser to the President on Enabling Business Environment Council & Investment, is set to be the Keynote Speaker. The focus is on fostering a culture that enables SME founders to cultivate a growth mindset in building their businesses.

This growth mindset entails a focus on learning, taking risks, and embracing new ideas. The event aims to create a supportive environment where small business owners can interact with the market and policymakers in real-time.

SMEFest 2024 will feature engaging panel sessions covering pertinent topics related to growth, regulation, and the future of payments. Additionally, there will be an exciting award ceremony granting business grants to the winners of the Business Ideathon Challenge and the Business Process Automation Hackathon.

This gathering promises to be an enriching experience for small business owners, providing them with the tools, knowledge, and networking opportunities needed to propel their enterprises to new heights. As SMEs play a crucial role in driving economic development, events like SMEFest contribute significantly to their empowerment and success.
