This is an article on our recent visit to Venia Business Hub in Lekki, Lagos. VENIA BUSINESS HUB is a platform that helps startups and entrepreneurs with a coworking tech space, entrepreneurs with like minds are allowed to network for business growth, also the startup businesses here are opened to investment opportunities by Venia business hub. On the 17th of April 2018, the Vice President of Nigeria (Prof. Yemi Osinbajo) visited this hub to see the possibility to invest in startup businesses and in young entrepreneurs.
Also, during our visit at this amazing hub we had a conversation with Tolu the Executive assistant to the CEO of Venia Business hub, and Peggy Oghor the Business Manager of Venia Business Hub. Tolu informed us that they do not run major events, but they organize a board room event on a monthly basis, where 20 entrepreneurs are selected, and speakers are brought to speak with them on strategies to build their business, she suggested that INGRESSIVE can also be a speaker at one of these Mini Events.
Peggy Oghor,the Business Manager of Venia, explained to us, they have a Large ILX Center used for trainings and events, as well as office spaces for startups and entrepreneur, which they do rent out at a cost.
Venia hub is a very large work space, having a two-story building, that incubates a very large number of startups and entrepreneurs (Pictures will be sent alongside).
