Founder and CEO of Venia Group, Kola Oyeneyin is set to directly impact and empower at least 240 entrepreneurs annually through a new platform tagged “The Boardroom“. Through this new platform being launched on May 18th, 2017, the serial entrepreneur will be teaching and training entrepreneurs on how to turn ideas into profitable ventures, covering topics critical for business sustainability, including but not limited to building healthy cash flows, raising finance, delivering consistent service quality, building company culture, and executing at scale.
Kola, having founded Venia Group, is not a stranger to running businesses in Nigeria. Venia Group is the parent company of four innovative brands so far: Venia Business Hub – Nigeria’s premier co-working and serviced office spaces; AutoGenius – Nigeria’s 1st digital insurance platform; The iLx Center – a start-of-the-art learning and capacity development center; and Margin.ng – an online knowledge-based platform that empowers entrepreneurs on the art of business.
Leveraging on his deep business knowledge and his vast network of other successful entrepreneurs, at The Boardoom, Kola will distil and strip bare, the myths around ‘business’, for selected entrepreneurs who are chosen out of hundreds of entries. The monthly event is open to all, but only 20 entrepreneurs will be selected monthly, and 240 cumulatively each year. It is a form of MBA, but on “steroids”!
“Let’s face it, running a business in Nigeria is sometimes like flying a plane in the sky, so many moving parts in an environment that will test every single skill known to man. At The Boardroom, my friends, mentors, partners and I want to help entrepreneurs succeed. The more successful businesses and entrepreneurs we have, the more jobs we are able to create and the better Nigeria becomes economically and socially”, said Kola Oyeneyin, whose company boasts of thriving local and international businesses as clients, including Uber, Branch, Asoko Insight, Flutterwave, FCMB, ECOWAS, Eskimi, Olorisupergal, and many more.
The maiden edition of The Boardroom holds today, May 18th, 2017, at Venia Group’s learning center, The iLx Center Lekki Phase 1, Lagos. For more info, please contact [email protected]
