In Africa and for centuries, storytelling has been the core of knowledge transfer, inspiration and the unwavering drive for the community.  Let's get back to the root on how to apply storytelling to drive investment that addresses the gaps in youth skills and entrepreneurship interventions which includes funding.

Our panelists will be sharing successes of storytelling from a personal and organisational perspective. The session promises to provide basic and practical steps successfully implemented in Africa and Nigeria, that can attract the right stakeholders and funders to increase sustainable funding for entrepreneurship interventions.

Our panelists have led organisations and built a career successfully not without storytelling as one of their vital tools in fundraising,  stakeholder partnerships known across Africa. We will debate on the fails, successes of adopting foreign storytelling strategies in Africa and what matters more when financing entrepreneurship in Nigerian and Africa more broadly.
