According to the Lead, Google Business Group Yaba, Afolayan Daniel, “The GBG Yaba Bizfest is expected to have about 400 startup owners, business professionals and enthusiasts. These are people who want to get informed about how they build and grow their business with the latest tech tools and platforms available. To make the event interactive, there will be a design thinking session where entrepreneurs will learn how to design practical and innovative solution-driven products and services using human-centered, iterative processes.

This kind of event is very apt for Yaba because it is the hub of the startup ecosystem in Nigeria. Like you know it is called ‘The Yabacon Valley’, Nigeria’s version of Silicon Valley. So it will be of great benefit to the startup owners and entrepreneurs in Yaba and environs.

This year’s BizFest is sponsored by Google, Malta Guinness, and Nestle. While media partners include BusinessDay,, CameramanNG, Marquess Photography and 3GKR8TIPH Studio.
