Executive Director of Ladies Helpline Initiative, Izehi Hannah Agunkejoye says the objective of AWEES 2019 is to equip women with the crucial elements required to grow their business and generate sales leads via technology for a productive 2020.

AWEES 2019 is a great opportunity for female-led businesses to acquire real-life hacks, as used by the likes of Folorunsho Alakija to build multi-billion-dollar ventures. I totally look forward to engaging women entrepreneurs who are ready to take their business to the next level to the next level in 2020 — Izehi Hannah, ED, Ladies Helpline Initiative

At AWEES 2019, critical sectors essential to building flourishing businesses will be extensively discussed. They include:

    • Business expansion — funding, partnerships and leverage
    • The Technology leverage — improving business skills
    • Growth Hacking — generating more sales
    • Legal considerations and registration for business owners
    • Insights on Google digital tools

Considering that many businesses in emerging economies barely scale to the heights of their global counterparts, there’s a growing need to divulge business tactics often hidden amongst a few.
