CFA’s Startups Hangout: Staying Focused against all Odds

You’re welcome to attend the February Edition of CFA’s Startups Hangout!

Quite a number of startups are confronted with one challenge or the other, whether it is surviving the adverse effects of economic downturn or inability to raise funds to actualise their goals or lack of patronage or difficulty in penetrating the market, etc. The average startup would also have multiple challenges to deal with.
In the light of these myriad of challenges, startups require direction on how to maneuver through all in order to achieve success and stay sustainable.
This is simply why is bringing you CFA’s Startups Hangout a monthly meetup where Startups can connect with successful entrepreneurs and top executives who have had similar experiences along the journey. This we believe will enable startups learn a thing or two such that they can easily leapfrog without having to make the very same or similar mistakes.
  • Experience sharing
  • Q&A
  • Networking session
– For Startups to learn from successful entrepreneurs, nuggets on how they can weather through unfavourable economic state to success.
– For Startups to network with one another in order to collaborate and partner with each other, taking advantage of areas of strengths and weaknesses, to synergize to achieve growth.
The event is free of charge, but only 30 seats are available, so, hurry now and register! Startups willing to attend will have to complete this registration form, and only those shortlisted will be invited.
Attendees who arrives without prior confirmation will not be allowed into the venue except they pay an entry fee of Three Thousand Naira only.
