9th EDC SME Conference

Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are critical to the development of any economy as they possess great potentials for employment generation, improvement of local technology, output diversification, development of indigenous entrepreneurship and forward integration with large-scale industries.

In Nigeria, the economic, political, social environment and absence of requisite infrastructure has rendered SME practice costly and difficult for the small and growing businesses.

Every year, Enterprise Development Centre brings together her members, other SMEs alike, stakeholders both in the public and private sector to meet and discuss contemporary issues affecting the Small Growing Businesses in Nigeria. This networking event provides a forum that not only strengthens the entrepreneurial space but contribute largely to the continuous development of the ecosystem.
