The session was facilitated by a business coach, Tricia Olufemi-Olumide (Tricia Biz) and social entrepreneur, Olusola Amusan.

‘‘It is improving your current business to achieve your goals & objectives, grow your income, reach more people and impact more people’’, she said.
Amusan noted that with digitalization and globalization, the economic impact of technology and innovation is compelling and huge for the youths and entrepreneurs.
