US State Department & Nigerian Embassy Launch Speaking Tour with Forbes30Under30 Entrepreneur Christine Souffrant Ntim- Women’s History Month Celebration
Abuja, Nigeria, March 1-7, 2017- Award winning Forbes 30 Under 30 global speaker and startup ecosystem expert, Christine Souffrant Ntim will conduct keynote talks and workshops on personal branding and startup hacking in Abuja, Kaduna and Jos for a one-week tour. The visit includes appearances at the Abuja Yali Network center, Abuja African Women Entrepreneurship Program (AWEP), Kaduna State University (KASU), Women’s Multipurpose Center in Kaduna, and Jos Business School. A delegation from the US-Nigerian Embassy will also be in attendance.
The tour was sparked by an interest to bring Silicon Valley tactics to Nigeria based on Mrs. Ntim’s successful launch of Africa’s largest online accelerator– graduating 100 African startups in January 2017. The program is now consulting governments and corporations around the world on how to launch their own customized online accelerators.
“The future is digital, so startup ecosystems in emerging markets need to take advantage of that with programs like this one” says Christine Souffrant Ntim, “we launched digital accelerators for entrepreneurs of Africa and the diaspora to close the resource gap and diversify global startup success stories”.
The free program provides all tactics on product development, marketing, growth hacking, funding, press hacking and more. The next cohort launches in October 2017 with key speakers from Y-Combinator, Tech Stars, Facebook, Google, Draper University, Singularity University at NASA, and more.
The keynote sessions to be presented are “How to Build and Monetize your Personal Brand”, “100 Secret Hacks to Scale Your Startup Globally”, and “How to Leverage Ai, VR and Exponential Technologies to Scale Your Company in the Future”. To sponsor future tours or to book Christine to speak at your event, inquiries can be sent to the Global Startup Ecosystem team at firstname.lastname@example.org . Inquiries for in person sponsorship meetings for corporate and government officials will take place at the Hilton in Abuja on a first come first served basis.
