Speaking on the event, VP Online Mr. Kenny Oriola, Konga Group, affirmed that the Konga SME Connect is a unique opportunity for participants to learn from Ekeh; arguably Africa’s most successful digital disruptor, while also affording them a chance to appraise themselves of the many avenues of partnering with Konga and creating sustainable wealth.
‘‘It is no secret that the raging COVID-19 pandemic has altered the equation of commercial transactions not only in Nigeria; but across the world, with SMEs and even large corporate organisations battling hard to keep their heads above water.
‘‘The prevailing situation requires business owners, entrepreneurs and even job seekers to remain alive to new and emerging opportunities in this challenging business space. In times of difficulties such as these, opportunities abound to create wealth and only those with the vision to sniff out these opportunities will benefit. This is one of the many tips we will be sharing with new, existing/ prospective merchants on the Konga platform; as well as business owners, the unemployed and other participants. Indeed, the Konga SME CONNECT is a must-attend event for all.
‘‘We are delighted to have Mr. Ekeh as the keynote speaker. We see him as a fitting testimony to the possibility of building the biggest business in Africa with astute vision; hard work, integrity and most importantly without taking any loans. We expect all participants to draw useful insights from the rich experiences Mr. Ekeh will share on the day,’’ he concluded.
Meanwhile, the Konga SME CONNECT which will hold virtually, is expected to become a regular feature for partners of the trusted e-Commerce giant.
