Lagos – The Thriving Business Women Fellowship (TBWF) has commenced its 2016 summit for aspiring entrepreneurs in Lagos, Ibadan and Abuja zones.

The summit, which takes place June every year, is said to have trained about 15,000 successful entrepreneurs within its eight years of existence.  This year’s edition is expected to parade leading women in business, such as the CEO of Verbatim Communications, Bidemi Mark Mordi; MD, Mix’N’ Bake, Ikeoluwa Biobaku; the MD Bridal Showers, Bosade Ogulana; MD/CEO Thots  ‘N’ Works, Mrs. Oluwaseun Ayanfeoluwa and MD, Sumptuous Meals, Omolara Imo-Owo.

According to the Team Lead of the summit, Dr. Bukola Adewakun, the forum is aimed at creating a platform for startups and aspiring entrepreneurs to learn from seasoned business women.

“There are many reasons why small businesses fail. According to a report, most start ups die within their first year of starting, but we believe they will learn from them, learn from their challenges, mistakes and their grass-to-grace stories and how they forged ahead in tough times.

“There is so much ignorance among aspiring startups; there is challenge of people waking up to start business without considering certain factors. Therefore, most of our speakers are coming to narrate their experience on how to survive as a start up,” she said.

She said the summit will take place every Tuesday in Lagos at Victory Place, No 15, Nurudeen Olowopopo Road, by Marwa Gardens Traffic Light, CBD Area, Alausa Ikeja; Ibadan every Thursday at The Atinuke Hall, Pentorise Event Center, Bodija; Abuja every Thursday at Bible Guest House, Wuze Zone 5, Abuja starting from 9am.

Adewakun said the summit is free.
