Devtalks is happening again!And this time, we're bringing Ms Yewande Sadiku, Executive Secretary, of the Nigerian Investment Promotion Council (NIPC), to come talk with us about Funding for Tecnology Development.
Its quite common for businesses to seek development funding for creating or building new projects such as a startup with the potential for social impact, and such funding is usually for large amounts of money above what the business owners can personally afford to invest individually or as a group. Typically, funding involves applying for a bank loan, but may also include applying for a government grant or a grant from a private foundation. This particular type of funding may also come from a private donor or lender.Ms Yewande Sadiku was one of the Executive Producers for Half of a Yellow Sun, the movie adaptation of the Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie novel of the same name, and she will be talking to members of our community on the methods you can use to raise funds for technology development projects. So register to attend and join us at 4pm, on Friday, October 20, 2017.
