After a successful and well-attended debut in Lagos, leading innovative and youth-centric telecommunications company, 9mobile, is set to take its mentorship programme ‘The Hack’ for young business owners to the nation’s capital for those hoping to grow their businesses.
The next edition of The Hack, a business and networking mentorship programme to support and promote emergent entrepreneurs, will hold on Friday, September 30, in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
It will be facilitated by business experts who will share business ideas with participants and groom them to scale their businesses.
The Hack focuses broadly on the endless opportunities in the SME sector while addressing particular problems that business owners confront. The workshop will assist business owners in expanding their enterprises and overcoming obstacles.
Commenting on the forthcoming event, Director of Marketing Communications, 9mobile, Saidat Lawal-Mohammed, said that the positive feedback from participants at the first edition and requests from other parts of the country encouraged 9mobile to do an encore in Abuja, while other cities would be unveiled soon. She explained the initiative fulfilled the Operator’s brand promise to enable Nigerians, especially youths, to do more.
“We are happy to assist entrepreneurs, including aspiring ones across the country, with the knowledge they need to grow their companies with our innovative platform, The Hack. And given that Abuja is home to many entrepreneurs, we are eager to have this second edition there,” she said.
Lawal-Mohammed added that 9mobile will continue to support entrepreneurs, start-ups, and MSMEs and would not waver as an enabler of individuals and businesses.
The first edition of The Hack happened in Lagos in June. It featured speakers including Director of Strategy, 9mobile, Karn Gulati, and business and sales expert Tricia Olufemi- Olumide (TriciaBiz). The facilitators shared practical ideas on how entrepreneurs can scale and grow their businesses.
The Hack is open to all network subscribers who have businesses and startups and are between 18 – 45 years.
