After a well-attended debut in Lagos, youth-centric telecommunications company, 9mobile is set to take its mentorship programme, The Hack, targeted at young business owners, to the nation’s capital, Abuja.
The next edition of this initiative of the leading innovative firm will hold on Friday, 30th September in the Federal Capital Territory.
The Hack is a business and networking mentorship programme to support and promote emergent entrepreneurs.
It will be facilitated by business experts who will share business ideas with participants and groom them to scale their businesses.
According to 9mobile, The Hack focuses broadly on the endless opportunities in the SME sector, while addressing particular problems that business owners confront. The workshop will assist business owners in expanding their enterprises and overcoming obstacles.
9mobile’s Director of Marketing Communications, Saidat Lawal-Mohammed said that the positive feedback from participants at the first edition, and requests from other parts of the country encouraged the company to extend the benefits to Abuja, while other cities would be unveiled soon.
She explained that the initiative fulfilled the telecoms operator’s brand promise to enable Nigerians, especially youths, to do more.
“We are happy to assist entrepreneurs, including aspiring ones across the country with the knowledge they need to grow their companies with our innovative platform, The Hack. And given that Abuja is home to many entrepreneurs, we are eager to have this second edition there”, she said.
Lawal-Mohammed added that 9mobile would continue to support entrepreneurs, start-ups, and MSMEs and would not waver as an enabler of individuals and businesses.
The first edition of The Hack was held in Lagos in June. The speakers included 9mobile’s Director of Strategy, Karn Gulati; and business and sales expert, Tricia Olufemi-Olumide (TriciaBiz). The facilitators shared practical ideas on how entrepreneurs can scale and grow their businesses.
The Hack is open to all network subscribers who have businesses and startups and are between 18 – 45 years. Interested participants can register at https://9mobile.com.ng/the-hack-seminar/.
