The telecommunications firm, Etisalat has moved to support the Rise, Raise and Give (RRG) initiative to assist young entrepreneurs in Nigeria.
According to a statement, the networking and shopping event, held in Lagos, is a platform to encourage young entrepreneurs with already established businesses to showcase their products and services in a highly interactive and relaxing environment.
In addition, the event was organized in support of the Down Syndrome Foundation of Nigeria, a non-governmental organization that is committed to bridging the gap between Down syndrome patients with the rest of the society through various support systems.
Head, Events and Sponsorships, Etisalat Nigeria, Modupe Thani, said the company’s decision to come on-board the project was borne out of the need to encourage young men and women who dared to follow their dreams by converting their passions into profitable business ventures.
“At Etisalat we are committed to spurring young entrepreneurs to maximizing their full potentials. We believe that the future of Nigeria’s economy lies with budding entrepreneurs, as such we consider them an important part of our target audience, designing products and services that speak directly to their needs,” she said.
