Over six hundred entrepreneurs from all over Nigeria and even Ghana flooded the Golden Tulip Agulu Lake Resort and Hotel in Anambra State, recently which was site of the Eastern Nigeria edition of the Global Capital Strategy Session hosted by the Nicky Okoye Organization. A similar session have been held in Lagos.
Dr Nicky Okoye, the founder of the Nicky Okoye Organization and Chief Strategist was the KEYNOTE speaker and he used the strategy session to detail six strategies that he and his team had developed which would reposition and usher in monumental wealth and prosperity for Nigerian and African businesses over the short, mid and long term. He also mentioned that these are strategies that if adopted by entrepreneurs will receive favorable attention from global capital institutional Investors. He first introduced his China Strategy which he said Nigerian and African Entrepreneurs could use to gain from over 85 million jobs that will be leaving China for new manufacturing bases over the next five years, as China joins the high income countries. In addition, Dr Okoye spoke about having a Digital Strategy in which over ten million African businesses need to adopt a new digital profile and reposition using cutting edge technologies of virtual reality, artificial intelligence, nano technology and robotics. Other strategies Dr Okoye outlined, included an Agricultural Strategy which will convert strategic sites in Nigeria into a global base for processing and export of processed agricultural products, especially siting industrial processing estates for cassava, cashew, cocoa, sorghum, sesame seed and palm products, all agricultural products that Nigeria leads as top three or top ten in global production today. He mentioned a Local Content Strategy which has achieved success in Nigeria’s oil and gas industry and needs to be extended beyond hydrocarbons, an Africa Content Strategy which would allow entrepreneurs and businesses to build capacity on the back of the Africa Continental Free Trade Area agreement currently being established and then finally he spoke about the Diaspora Strategy which gives entrepreneurs and businesses the possibility to start looking at the $270 billion in annual earnings of the Nigerians in Diaspora population as a market into on itself.
Dr Okoye rounded up his presentation by advising Entrepreneurs to adopt a new approach to raising capital and investment which he termed a GLOBAL CAPITAL STRATEGY. In this regard he advised businesses to follow his designed and researched laid down procedure for achieving an investment grade business structure which includes a business excellence matrix, a determined value proposition and a business strategy framework which all together form the basis for a successful global capital strategy and subsequent investment in your business.
