This year’s edition, which was the 7th in the series, also featured exhibitions by beneficiaries of the scheme.

Muda Yusuf, Director General of the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) said: “the scheme is a notable Corporate Social Responsibility initiative of the Chamber, and its objective is to create and develop an army of young entrepreneurs that will be able to manage their various businesses efficiently. We are preparing them to be the future ‘Fortune 50’ companies in Nigeria.”

“One sure way of investing in the future of the economy is Mentoring the Youth to create and man- age businesses. It is a way of launching them into the business world, much better equipped to ride on the waves and challenges in their quest for success” Yusuf disclosed.
