Greetings. The Tekedia Institute has worked with thousands of innovators, companies and public institutions in 2020. Through co-creation and co-learning, we deepened capabilities, and advanced the knowledge of our members, on the mechanisms to efficiently utilize factors of production, to fix market frictions. Our overriding theme has been innovation, growth and digital execution.
As 2020 passes, we are now looking forward to 2021. In Nigeria and across Africa, we see 2021 as the Year of Accelerated Growth, especially for tech-anchored businesses. Massive opportunities would be unlocked as technology continues to transform markets and economies. In an upcoming Harvard Business Review article, I asked: how can companies capture value? Yes, what do firms need to do to advance their missions despite the structural redesigns in today’s market systems, after Covid-19?
During 2020 Tekedia Mini-MBA, we held 162 exclusive webinars, anchored by executives from Coca Cola, Shell, Schlumberger, Deloitte, Access Bank, Infoprive, TAFFDs USA, Jobberman, etc. The last of the year will be open, and for everyone. It is scheduled as follows to prepare for 2021:
