As part of its commitment to building and supporting economic growth and development in the country, Diamond Bank, in partnership with Pan-Atlantic University’s Enterprise Development Centre (EDC), has rolled out series of activities to celebrate the immense contributions of entrepreneurs in driving economic growth and development in the country.

The weeklong event, which kick-starts with a ‘Walk for Entrepreneurship’ on Saturday, November 12, 2016 in Lagos, is seen by many in the MSME segment of the economy, not just only as a campaign to drum support for the enhancement of entrepreneurial skills in business, but also as a strategic move to highlight programmes that will help accelerate capacity development and boost productivity.

The Global Entrepreneurship Week is celebrated in over 160 countries across the world. And as part of the celebration in Nigeria, the Entrepreneurship Walk will also hold simultaneously across other five major cities including Ibadan, Enugu, Port Harcourt, Nsukka and Abuja.

Chioma Afe, Head, Corporate Communications, Diamond Bank, stated that despite the enormous challenges confronting Nigerian entrepreneurs, their contribution in economic growth and development, especially in the MSME space is undeniable.

According to her, Diamond Bank is very passionate about these operators in the economy, noting that in this partnership with EDC “we want to let them know that we treasure and value their roles”.

A statement on the Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) affirmed that the initiative celebrates the contribution and passion of entrepreneurs that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and contribute significantly to expand human welfare.

“Diamond Bank is at the forefront of promoting entrepreneurship in Nigeria. We are aware that entrepreneurs drive the economy especially at the MSME level. What we are doing with EDC is not just only to celebrate them, but, also, to galvanise them to do more and accelerate economic recovery and stability,” Afe stated.

Speaking further, she pointed that the programmes line-up by the Bank for the week will give entrepreneurs the much needed opportunity for business networking and connectivity.

Topics scheduled for discussion throughout the week in Inspiration FM include, ‘How to be a successful start-up’, ‘Harnessing the Creative Industry’, ‘Exporting Nigerian SMEs’, ‘Revisiting the 3Rs in HR Management’, ‘Innovative ways of Raising Capital’, ‘Social Innovation for growth’ and ‘Celebrating Entrepreneurship’.

The weeklong series of activities will climax with entrepreneurs’ forum on November 17, 2016 in Abuja.
