He noted that the programme would engage 50 registered/licensed SMEs from all sectors operating within Lagos and Ogun states.

He added that selected participants would be guided and provided with tools to help design strategies for their businesses’ growth in the new year.

“It is important that SMEs are armed with what constitutes a successful business, pitfalls to avoid when running a business, and follow through with strategic planning designed with a case study review.

“The program which would be for 50 participants is open to new and existing business owners especially, young entrepreneurs.

“The SMEs would be taught to develop winning strategies to achieve goals, given clarifications on aligning personal goals with corporate ones, effective communication mechanisms among others.

“They will fall into either of the two groups: Start-ups or Growing businesses in need of an accelerator,” he said
