In this video, I discuss how the Nigerian Stock Exchange can make it easier for startups to list in the exchange. I propose, among others, for direct listing where any requirement for underwriting is completely waived. The startups, especially technology-enabled ones, will not have to go through the painful process of underwriting new shares, but post-listed, can sell equity to private investors. I want to see Iroko Partners, Flutterwave and Zenvus in the NSE as quickly as possible.
