Therefore, on Thursday, May 13, 2021, Prof. Stephanie shall be facilitating a very important session on “Creating Your Theory of Change”, which is designed to help our young entrepreneurs clarify their priorities by defining their business goals and the paths to achieve them.

While it is important to measure financial performance, it is equally important to measure the impact they are creating with their businesses. In this session, she will walk them through the Theory of Change and discuss strategies to measure impact. They will wrap up with a discussion on how impact measurement allows entrepreneurs to further participate in the international conversation and marketplace.

These and more shall be the focus of the session this week with the over 100 Nigerian youths benefiting from the $250,000 Startups Development Program powered by our partners, InnoPower Indy USA.

Once again, we congratulate all the #Nigerianyouths benefiting from this important project and hope they will maximize the opportunities offered by it.
