According to the convener of event, Seye Olurotimi who is the founder of MSME Africa: â€œScaling and growing businesses are major challenges for business owners in Africa especially those who fall within the MSME bracket; that is why only a small percentage of businesses started in the continent exist beyond the fifth year. The real deal is not starting a business but growing and sustaining it.
"This is why we have brought business owners and experts together to come discuss these all-important issues and proffer solutions" Olurotimi added.
MSME Dialogue seeks to address, on a quarterly basis, burning issues about entrepreneurship and running a small business as well as proffering solutions to those issues. The event aims to also provide the right knowledge and know-how for MSMEs, Entrepreneurs and Startups to enable them grow and thrive and features subject matter experts, seasoned entrepreneurs, professionals and players within the MSME Ecosystem.
