FLOURISHING IN AUSTERITY: Practical steps to take in a recession

“Recession is an opportunity to leap, not a season to squat.”

We are in a recession. That’s the  reality. But it doesn’t have to be your own business reality.

I’ve often said, “Recession is an opportunity to leap, not a season to squat”, and the earlier you take that to heart, the better for your experience in business.

There are things you can begin to do now to recover your business from the grip of the recession – practical things. These practical steps are the focus of our discourse in this compact course courtesy #StrictlyStartups.

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.
