StartUp+ Conference hosts 120 Nigerian Startups (@StartUpPlusNG)

It is no longer news that startups in Nigeria are heeding the clarion call with the evolution of hubs, incubators, accelerators, and VCs. More than ever before, there is a need to provide support for the growth and flourishing of startups in Nigeria.

StartUpPlus, a startup ecosystem, is at the fore of this movement providing dedicated support that ultimately gives startups control over their growth and flourishing. In a statement by Adeleke David Adekunle, Executive Director of StartUpPlus, “one of the serial killers of startups is absence of cashflow which places a lid on their growth potential”. Studies demonstrate that only 4% of startups alive today are expected to remain alive by 2025; quite staggering!

StartUpPlus, in response to this critical issue, has set the stage for startups to convene to share, learn and deliberate on the subject of cashflow. On Friday, May 1st, 120 Nigerian startups (aspiring and existing) will gather at Protea Hotel Ikeja, GRA for StartUp+ Conference Lagos 2015 #SUCLagos2015 to do justice to the theme, Cashflow: from startup idea to revenue. The central focus of the conference is how to rake in revenue from your startup idea in the shortest possible time.

MONDAY FEVER: A Worldwide Condition

Hello!

If you’re reading this, it means you are either wondering at the title of this blog post or you want an answer to get out of his worldwide condition.

Some startling stats I came across a couple of years ago said:
1. 80% of employees don’t think their job is fun (Reuters, 2007)
2. Only 50% of people are satisfied with their jobs (Conference Board, 2007)
3. 32% of all workers call in sick when they are not. (Harris, 2007)
4. Every year, 2.5 million people will quit their jobs (BOLS, 2007)

Just this morning, a young female graduate who got her first job in January 2014 and is currently in her 2nd job confessed saying, “Having a job doesn’t necessarily mean the job is what you want or you are happy in it“.

Today, in Nigeria, the work week begins right after a two-day public holiday for the Muslim festivities. The holiday was to the delight of many because they had escaped Monday. Howbeit, Wednesday (today) is a nightmare as several BBM personal messages read things like, “Gosh! Back to the earth“, “So there’s work tomorrow! Where are my socks, shoes, belt?” The PMs go on and on.

The question is, Why do people hate Monday?

Maybe they liked Wednesday before now, but they suddenly hated it because it had become the Monday of this week. Watch this space over the next four weeks as I share insights to help you overcome Monday Fever.

Till you draw your very last breath, don’t you for one second forget this; don’t let it slip into forgetfulness; don’t relegate it to the backside of your mind. Keep it in front of your eyes, on your wrist and paste on your forehead. Convince yourself everyday and remind yourself of it.
