As a long-time champion of youth growth and entrepreneurship, the Normal Financial institution Group gives many initiatives on this regard. The latest is a progressive partnership between our Stanbic IBTC Financial institution Nigeria and main tech firm Google, one that can tackle key challenges that face burgeoning small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
As Nigeria goals to efficiently diversify its economic system, the power of digital know-how to empower the inhabitants and stimulate small-business development must be emphasised. Accordingly, this joint initiative gives free digital abilities coaching to youth and SME homeowners to advertise financial development, highlighting the advantages and worth of digital advertising and marketing. As a direct consequence, it’s hoped that about 1 000 SMEs might be upskilled in a single yr.
In accordance with Bunmi Banjo, Head of Digital Training at Google Africa, Nigeria is effectively suited to a digital revolution all through the spheres of its society; with over 97 million on-line subscribers, the West African nation has one of many highest on-line populations on this planet, presenting massive alternatives for the SME and start-up sector.
The coaching classes are scheduled to begin in Lagos and Kaduna on 19 July, and can, subsequently, be held in seven different states all through the nation.
