As you may already know, Startup Grind Lagos hosts monthly fireside chats with established entrepreneurs and investors to inspire and educate startup founders. However, for the first time, Startup Grind Lagos will be interviewing the CEO of a publicly traded company, in the person of Bola Akindele – the Founder and Group Managing Director of Courteville Business Solutions.
Bola has over three decades of professional experience spanning audit, banking, business development, and information technology. His leadership assets have strengthened Courteville’s culture of innovation, expanded the company into new markets, and extended its product portfolio. In 2008-9, he led the company’s initial public offering and listing on the Nigerian Stock Exchange, setting a record as the first business process outsourcing and e-business solutions development company to go public in Nigeria.
We believe the insights and experience he would share would be very valuable to startups looking to build companies that scale and eventually get traded on the stock Exchange.
The event will hold this Saturday 23rd April, 2016 by 11AM at Courteville Business Solutions PLC, 38 Commercial Avenue, Yaba.
