One of the key objectives of this event is to sensitise the Nigerian creative sector to the opportunities that abound in Nigeria, while showcasing and rewarding those that have taken the bull by the horn.
A second objective is to better understand the dynamics of being an entrepreneur in the creative economy. Through this programme we seek opportunities to achieve both sensitisation and understanding.
