Running a smooth and efficient business remains a major challenge in Nigeria. And despite best efforts from government as well as private stakeholders, solutions which address core small scale business operations still remain few. Eyowo, a financial solutions platform, is looking to solve this challenge.

To drive help achieve its aim of helping businesses grow, the company has launched the Boost Your Business with Eyowo retail/business workshop series in Lagos.
Themed “Driving Business growth with data,” the workshop is aimed at creating an avenue where retailers and business owners can learn how to improve business performance using modern tools and strategies.
The workshop, which took place on Saturday February 8 2020, had retailers, business owners and stakeholders in the fin-tech industry all in attendance.
Speaking at the workshop, CEO, Tomi Amao reiterated the institution’s vision with the purpose of solving financial inclusion problems and making daily transactions seamless for businesses in Nigeria.
“The boost your business retail seminar is one of many steps we are taking to achieve our vision which is to promote and drive financial inclusion throughout Africa. We believe this is very possible,” he said.
The guest speaker, Dr. O. Olufemi Oyenuga, Chief Customer Enterprise Architect, Oracle Ecemea [CTO], delivered a lecture around the theme Driving Business Growth with Data.
