NES 25th Startups Pitching Event Context.

The Nigerian Economic Summit Group (NESG) organizes the Annual Nigerian Economic Summit in partnership with the Federal Government of Nigeria through the Federal Ministry of Budget and National Planning. It has become an annual dialogue and indeed the flagship event of NESG and the Federal Government that has provided a credible and widely recognized platform for top policymakers and corporate leaders.

In 2017, the NESG introduced a Start-ups Pitching Event as part of the Annual Nigerian Economic Summit. Many start-up entrepreneurs struggle to get the funds they need to grow their business and, in some cases, even require mentorship, professional advisory services, etc. Innovators and entrepreneurs from all over Nigeria would have an opportunity to pitch their start-ups and this is a platform for such businesses to collaborate and interact with individuals and organizations interested in promoting entrepreneurship and an opportunity to pitch to experienced investors and obtain great feedback and possibly capital.

New ventures with innovative ideas will be the direct beneficiaries of this event, as they will showcase their businesses before investors and have access to investment opportunities. They will also be able to receive guidance and business opinions from them during the event which will also greatly enhance their capacities to grow. In addition, they will get a more visible brand effect from this platform.

For the prospective investors, it will be an opportunity to identify and invest in new ventures that are early stage and that align with their own investment strategy.
