It is an undeniable fact that doing business in Nigeria is tough. The environment is toxic to business survival. However, we cannot continue to put all the blames on the government for everything that is not working.
By experience, an average Nigerian does not care about the state of the country as long as his corner is working well, this attitude is part of what is killing the sustainable effort of few individuals in the business cycle.
For us to record positive change, every young person in the country must put their right foot forward and make a fierce effort to change the current narratives of the country if we desire a better future. That is the focus of the third edition of 100 Young CEOs Forum.
Therefore, the third edition theme: “Entrepreneurs as Reformers” was clearly thought out to create new armies of young entrepreneurs who understand the dynamics of the Nigeria market and are ready to work with others to create a success-enabled environment for business to thrive.

Collaboration is the currency of the 21st century. The 100 Young CEOs Forum believe that there is no single one of us that is as powerful as all of us. It is high time we create platforms as the men did at Babel to build a new tower for reshaping Nigeria narratives. The socio-economic crises we have experienced in the country is solvable if we can create that atmosphere that support each us to succeed. Nigeria is never in short supply of vibrant, intelligent, hard-working young people, the problem has always been a good support system that create conducive platforms for these brilliants ones to express their full potentials without limitations.
Many of our small scale businesses never survive past the first three years of their existence because there are lots of toxic elements that made the market place unconducive for small scale business to survive. Our plan is to bring 100 Young CEO together in a bid to help each to succeed. We will be the bridge for all these startups by using professional networks to guide them in every decision-making process.
Our society is a multicultural society and this supposes to serve as an area of strength. But because many of our Small Businesses rather than projecting our cultural strength, are aiming to mirror the western market way of operations which at the same time automatically set them up for a business war they are not equip to fight, needless to say win. Many of our indigenous brands are in competition with global brands using the same module they created to compete with them, a battle they can never win. We cannot beat them at the game they invented except we bring our own indigenous ways of doing things to make the difference. We have studied our culture and richness of her resources and we will be giving our 100 CEO terrains to follow in Branding and marketing our cultural value with their idea/products on a global market.
The 100 Young CEOs Forum will lead young entrepreneurs who have great ideas to take responsibility for making our nation a better place than we found it by advancing diversity and inclusion. This is not just a seminar but a platform that brings young brilliants mind together for the purpose of training, mentorship and much more.
We will ensure we have at least 100 CEOs in every local government across the federations to champion the transition of great paradigm shift in our society. We will use networks of resourceful professionals across EVERY sector to guide these Young CEO in a bid to train them on how to fare in business trouble-waters, tackle raging issues across our education sector, economic challenges, socio-political problems and much more. We will constantly bring them together to come and learn industry insights from experienced and resourceful people during these meetups. For now, we are focusing on six cities: Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt, Enugu, Calabar, and Kaduna. And Lagos is our starting point.
Nigeria market has come of age. Many international markets never considered Nigeria to be a third world country and that is why we have a higher influx of global brands moving into Nigeria Market.
Nigeria Youth must come together to give Nigeria the winning edge it deserves on global stage. We must give all to ensure we give the coming generation a better, stronger, and a prosperous country.
