Ep38: What we learnt from Startup Grind Lagos May Meetup
Startup Grind Lagos celebrated her Female Entrepreneur/Founder month and it was so much fun. Three amazing personalities were hosted. They shared their experiences with the participating entrepreneurs. These personalities were Olatorera Oniru (a passionate African entrepreneur who we have had on our show before. You can listen to that episode here), Abimbola Adebakin and Pradeep Pahalwani.
The meetup was very insightful and engaging. Different topical issues were discussed. Most of the conversations addressed life issues and challenges faced by entrepreneurs. Gender issues were also addressed. You missed, if you were not there. Ensure you never miss another meetup. You can signify your interest by sending us an email.
Back to the matter, Pradeep anchored the Learning curve session and he did so beautifully. Since we cannot share everything with you for free, we decided to share a tip of the iceberg with you.
We learned a lot but we will be focusing on some of the statements made by Pradeep a.k.a Otunba. Pradeep is a serial entrepreneur with successful businesses in Lagos. He enjoys sharing his experiences with those that are smart enough to listen.
Two statements he made caught our attention:
- Build your business to sell
- Don’t be afraid to copy, if you can execute the idea well.
