The annual Youthpreneur Business Summit is a platform for innovative and young Nigerian entrepreneurs between the ages of 18-35 aimed at sharing ideas, networking and mentoring in order to finding lasting solutions to the challenges ravaging the nation’s economy.

The theme for this year’s summit ‘Passion to Wealth: Road to Economic Diversification,’ cannot be more timely considering the effect of the dwindling oil prices on the nation’s economy. This has forced Nigeria to begin to look inwards for alternative sources of income while hoping to increase exports hence, the dire need to diversify.

Speakers at the event will include industry experts alongside young and successful entrepreneurs from different sectors and the keynote address will be given by Mr Mudashiru Yusuf – Director General, Lagos State Chamber for Commerce and Industry. Other prominent SME experts lined up for the event include:


Adepeju Jaiyeoba – Founder of Mother’s Delivery Kit.
Gbenga Ogundeji – Zonal Coordinator, Small and Medium Enterprises Development Agency of Nigeria (SMEDAN), South West Zone.
