Ingressive, Rising Tide Africa, GBF, TGBC and Citi are collaborating to present a special edition of this Ecosystem Hangout entitled Digital Leadership: Going Beyond Viral. This event will be held on June 30th from 12:00pm to 3:00pm at the IBM Innovation Center in Victoria Island. Our goal is to convene developers/designers, corporate partners, entrepreneurs, and students to build a supportive ecosystem for innovation. Join us as we explore the logic behind creating a lasting digital presence and celebrate the culimination of the Leadership and Development Program for Youths in Lagos State. Entrepreneurs at different levels will learn how to connect to a core audience in a way that creates value and loyalty. In a world obsessed with clicks, follows, and likes; Digital Leadership is the newest evolution in building your brand.

The three topics under this event will be “Growing Your Followership by Creating Value” presented by Ozzy Etomi, “Monetizing Your Followers” presented by you Dacheo Media, and “Digital Transformation”led by Mikki of RDM. By creating value, attendees will learn how to surpass trending topics and viral content by building a loyal followership with longevity. Monetizing followers will allow students to take advantage of a tool with a low barrier to entry to build a customer base. Digital Transformation will show attendees how leveraging technology can assist in efficient scalability for any business.

Digital Leadership is important to anyone with an entrepreneurial mindset seeking sustainable growth. The course will consist of three parts catering to those wanting to start a business, those who have a venture of their own, and those already dedicated to a career path. Those in attendance will be introduced to content that will help them get started, be exposed to concepts that will prove useful as they advance, in addition to having access to potential mentors. Our corporate partners presenting content include representatives from joining Dacheo Media, Paga, and Ringier Digital Media.
