MSME Dialogue 2.0

By Dipo Olowookere

On Saturday, November 28, 2020, at 10am, some business experts will gather for the second edition of MSME Dialogue organised by MSME Africa, a multi-faceted resource platform for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) on the continent.

The speakers contracted for the event include the founder/CEO of Farmcrowdy, Onyeka Akumah; the co-founder/CEO of So Fresh, Olagoke Balogun; the CEO of HYBR Group, Charles Ojei; Partner, PwC Nigeria, Esiri Agbeyi; and the President/Chairman of Council, Nigerian Youth Chamber of Commerce, Dr Peter Ayim.

A statement issued by the organisers said those expected at the event themed Tackling the Scaling and Growth Challenges for SMEs include small business owners from the different sector of the economy.

Participants will learn from the insights, wealth of experience and expertise to be shared by these experts, who have excelled in their various fields.

“Scaling and growing businesses are major challenges for business owners in Africa especially those who fall within the MSME bracket; that is why only a small percentage of businesses started in the continent exist beyond the fifth year.

“The real deal is not starting a business but growing and sustaining it,” the convener of event and founder of MSME Africa, Mr Seye Olurotimi, said in the statement.

He added that, “This is why we have brought business owners and experts together to come to discuss these all-important issues and proffer solutions.”

He explained that MSME Dialogue seeks to address, on a quarterly basis, burning issues about entrepreneurship and running a small business as well as proffering solutions to those issues.

The event, which requires registration to attend via, aims to also provide the right knowledge and know-how for MSMEs, entrepreneurs and start-ups to enable them to grow and thrive and features subject matter experts, seasoned entrepreneurs, professionals and players within the MSME ecosystem, he added.
