CFA’s Startups Hangout is a free monthly meetup where entrepreneurs meet, network, learn and grow. Yes, a very simple mission behind the hangout!
You see, entrepreneurship is no joke and also not for the faint hearted. Ok I understand that the current startup culture and language makes it all look so easy and smooth especially when you hear of all the fantastic ideas and folks raising millions of dollars everywhere 🙂
Well at the end of the day whether you call yourself a startup or small business owner, you are basically an entrepreneur and the fundamentals are basically the same such as having a good work ethics corporate culture, efficient accounting system, effective PR and marketing strategy, a great team plus understanding your industry and the environment well enough.
The good news is that five days after we announced the event, it has basically sold out. Infact our team had to go see Adna Hotel (the venue) to work out a new seating arrangement that will accommodate more than 30 people comfortably and it seems we have that sorted because when there is a will, there is a way.
Quite frankly, it will be awesome to have 40 startups gather at the maiden edition of the hangout and this may just prove our internal thesis that the ecosystem needs more well thought out events to sustain the tempo, education and growth.
So if you’d like to attend the January edition of CFA’s Startups Hangout, then go sign up here. You may be lucky to get a ticket or may have to be on the waiting list or at least get to know about the February edition when it is announced.

Please Note: Attendees who arrive without prior confirmation will not be allowed into the venue except they pay an entry fee of Three Thousand Naira only (that’s if there is a free seat), so to avoid any embarrassment do not show up without confirming your ticket and ensure you fill the form correctly.
