MainOne boss, others counsel on sustainable investment



Some prominent Nigerian investors have advised intending entrepreneurs to ensure building their businesses with sustainability as the bedrock of their intention, saying they should make a change in the country through their businesses.

Speaking at the Conference for Emerging Entrepreneurs in Lagos, Chairman, MainOne Cable, Funke Opeke, advised entrepreneurs to dismantle every barrier to business growth as reflected in common constraints like inadequate security and infrastructure.

During the conference, the United States Consulate General and the Field of Skills and Dreams Academy also revealed its partnership to train and mentor about 102 budding Nigerian entrepreneurs.

Opeke said: “I encourage people that despite the challenging environment, they can be focused and deploy their capacity into what they want to do.”

On his part, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Channels Television, Mr. John Momoh, advised the youths not to give up on their dreams of becoming business owners irrespective of their location or situation, saying that they should not compromise their integrity.

Speaking on his venturing into television station business, Momoh said he did because his dream of owning a broadcast media organisation was a risk worth taking. According to him, “you must have passion and vision; be ready to take risks, be decisive, think big, have a positive mind-set and seek out opportunities around you. Work hard and be innovative. Do not focus your mind on money. When you focus on satisfying your customers, the money will come.”

Co-founder and Director, Sahara Group, Tonye Cole, charged the entrepreneurs to be innovative and change the status quo as they remained ambassadors in the country and beyond. “You have to be innovative and create things that people don’t understand.

You can dream big but start small and focus on understanding the business. If we can succeed regardless of lack of access to training, you can also succeed,” he stated. Consul General, John Bray, said that those to be trained would be equipped with skills to grow and expand their businesses.

According to him, it is an opportunity for the entrepreneurs to change their society by proffering solutions to economic challenges through resilience.
