Innovention Series To Expand To Other States, African Countries
By Abutu Agada
Following the continual success of the Innovation Series that has been running consecutively for six years and calls from different quarters to take it beyond Lagos, the organizers of the forum have resolved to extend it to other states and countries within African.
According to the organisers, the Series will run as mini bites of the main event in form of roundtable across states in the country, while it will start the expansion beyond Nigeria to other countries in West African Coast.
“As we institutionalize the success around the Series, there is also the necessity to take the conversation abroad particularly along West Coast of Africa. What it means is that the Series has become something of a public trust.”
It will be recalled that during the last year edition of the event, calls were made by participants for the event to be taken to other parts of the country.
The Innovention Series is a brainchild of Verdant Zeal which was instituted as a platform to examine the question of Africa’s development, hone in on opportunities for growth while focusing on leveraging inherent strengths.
It attracts patrons from both the public and private sectors and has become a strong voice in stimulating pragmatic conversations that challenge the status quo.
