About the Nigeria SME Connect Forum

The Nigeria SME Connect Forum is an event that brings together registered SME business owners in Nigeria with Investors, Companies and other SMEs from around the world interested in Nigeria’s non-oil sectors. The goal is to foster partnerships and drive foreign investment into the country as we improve the capacity of local SMEs in international trade. The Forum consists of two events to be held over a 4-day period.

The Nigeria SME Connect Forum comes up in May, 2017 and would be hosted in Abuja, Nigeria and would focus on the Agriculture and Real Estate sectors. Local and International businesses in these sectors would connect and form partnerships and exchange resources in view of achieving mutual business interests and developing the Nigerian economy.

The Nigeria SME Connect is a collaboration between the Small and Medium Enterprise Development Agency of Nigeria (SMEDAN), an agency under the Presidency, Federal Republic of Nigeria and Footprint to Africa, a business and financial news resource and investment bridge company.
