The Spirit of Enterprise initiative is targeted at providing avenues for aspiring and early stage entrepreneurs to acquire personal empowerment opportunities to develop and establish their ideas and businesses. And in line with this vision, the body will be organizing an Aspiring Entrepreneurs Seminar and the 3rd edition of their Networking Exposition, working in conjunction with the Nigeria Hosts of the Global Entrepreneurship Week.

“If you have ever had thoughts along the line of: “Honestly, I’m tired of my job. I really want to launch out on my own and work for myself.”, “I have a great BIG idea I can explore and start something great but I don’t know how to go about it.”, “Yeah I have my day job and run my business on the side but I’m not sure I’ll be able to survive if I quit my job for my business.”, “I woke up one morning and quit my day job to concentrate on my business. Now I’m stuck and I wish I’d never quit!”, there’s a simple step to take to help you make the transition – attend The Spirit of Enterprise Aspiring Entrepreneurs Seminar,” a message from the organisers read.
