Company Hosts Entrepreneurship Summit – The Sun Nigeria
From Okwe Obi, Abuja
Endeavor Nigeria has announced plans to host its 4th edition of an Entrepreneurship Summit to nurture the talents of budding innovators.
Endeavor Nigeria Managing Director and CEO Tosin Faniro-Dada captioned the event yesterday in a statement from Joy Mabia, Senior Associate, Marketing and Communications: “Building big bubbles…invest in the next generation of entrepreneurs.”
Faniro-Dada expressed optimism that the event would simulate the powerful impact of building big bubbles by high-impact entrepreneurs who dedicate, advise and invest their time and resources in the next generation of entrepreneurs by passing them on.
“At Endeavour, we characterize Big Bubbles as high-impact entrepreneurs who combine bold ambition, business track record, potential to scale and, most importantly, a give-back mindset that will benefit the next generation of African entrepreneurs.
“The 4th edition of Catalysing Conversations, with TeamApt as primary sponsor, will bring together the world’s leading and next-generation business leaders to discuss critical issues of impactful entrepreneurship, innovation and economic development, and showcase entrepreneurs through thought-provoking conversations in dynamic TED-style talk and fireside chat formats.
“Endeavor’s goal is to drive thought leadership and demonstrate why driving it is critical to the growth of high-impact entrepreneurship and the digital ecosystem in Africa.
“The packed agenda will feature a mix of moderated fireside chats and TED-style presentations from speakers from diverse backgrounds.
“The talks will focus on topics such as innovation, high-growth business momentum, impactful entrepreneurship, the journey from startup to unicorn, financial freedom and the transformative power of technology.”

“We’re already seeing some big bubbles in our ecosystem today, like Interswitch’s Mitchell Elegbe, Paga’s Tayo Oviosu, Flutterwave’s Gbenga Agboola, and Piggyvest’s Odun Eweniyi.
“These entrepreneurs are investing with us in the next generation of entrepreneurs
