The Federal Government will soon open a startup portal for small businesses where they can access funding and get other support
In line with the Startup Act which was recently signed by the President, the Federal Government will soon open a startup portal for small businesses where they can access funding and get other support.
The startup portal will also facilitate how licenses will be issued to small businesses in order to be classified as startups. 
In addition, the Startup Portal will provide a seamless platform for small businesses to interact with the necessary government agencies, private institutions, angel investors, incubators, venture capitalists, and accelerators among other relevant segments or institutions that are critical to the development of small businesses.
Interestingly, the portal will also have business advancement programmes, showcases, fellowships and pitching competitions.
Investors King had earlier reported that President Muhammadu Buhari signed the Startup Bill into law earlier this month following the national assembly approval.
According to the Act, Nigeria startups will officially have access to a special seed fund which will be created and monitored by the government, in partnership with the private sector. 
With several funding programs such as Credit Guarantee Scheme and Startup Investment Seed Fund, the Act aims to create an enabling environment for small businesses in Nigeria, particularly tech-based startups.
Furthermore, the bill sought the creation of a National Council for Digital Innovation and Entrepreneurship (NCDIE) which will have the Nigerian President as Chairman, the Vice President as the Alternate Chairman while the Minister for Communication and Digital Economy will serve as the Vice Chairman of the Council.
In addition, membership of NCDIE will be drawn from both the government, private sector as well as academia. 
According to the Ministry of Communication and Digital Economy, Prof Isa Pantami, the Startup Act 2022 is the right thing to do to help the numerous startups springing up from Nigeria. 
The minister noted that Nigerian startups have continued to lead the startup ecosystem in Africa both in terms of numbers and funding. 
Pantami concluded that the Startup Act was carefully drafted with the input of young inventors across the six geopolitical zones of the country.

Mobile telecommunications company MTN has launched the ‘BlowMyHustle’ campaign.
In a bid to empower young Nigerians, Mobile telecommunications company MTN Nigeria has launched the ‘BlowMyHustle’ campaign.
This campaign seeks to provide support and help young Nigerians who own businesses scale. It is also geared towards building entrepreneurial skills and providing them with the right principles to excel in various industries.
Speaking on the launch of the campaign, Chief Marketing Officer, MTN Nigeria, Adia Sowho said, “The ‘hustle spirit’ amongst Nigeria’s young people is truly inspiring as they are innovative and entrepreneurial. MTN is here to support that ‘hustle’ so that their dreams can become reality.
“Young business owners have told us what they need, and with ‘MTN Pulse Blow My Hustle’, we will share business skills from experts in relevant fields and create access to financial grants. We look forward to the transformation that this initiative will propel.”
Through this campaign, MTN seeks to target 100 candidates, who when short-listed will be given the privilege to gain access to virtual training on Financial Literacy, Business Management, Investment Strategies, Digital Marketing, Business Legal Requirements, and Elevator Pitches amongst others; and tasks will be assigned after each class. 
Also, the top 20 contestants will be selected based on performance after the two-week training period as finalists who will present their business ideas to a panel of judges, and engage in a brief question and answer session.

The telecommunications sector has created over 500,000 jobs and contributed $70 billion to the Nigerian economy so far.
The telecommunications sector has created over 500,000 jobs and contributed $70 billion to the Nigerian economy so far, according to Prof. Umar Danbatta, the Executive Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission(NCC).
Prof. Danbatta, who spoke at a Cyberchain event in Abuja on “Using Technology to Grow Nigeria’s GDP”, emphasized the significance of the telecommunications sector to the Nigerian economy, both public and private sectors.
The Prof., who was represented by Mrs. Ella Eli, the Principal Manager of the Digital Economy, explained that the adoption of the digital economy has enabled Nigeria to diversify its revenue generation and broaden its job creation by improving service efficiency through reduction of waste and optimisation of available resources.
In his words, he said, “Nigeria’s adoption of digital technologies has enabled it to diversify its revenue and economy, created jobs, improved services and efficiency, reduced wastages, and optimized resources available”.
Speaking on the sector’s contribution to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP), Danbatta said both in the informal and the formal sectors over 500,000 jobs have been created while the sector has enhanced Nigeria’s economy by more than $70 billion in value.
In fact, as it stands today, most Nigerians can not function on a daily basis without their mobile phones. A tool “the liberalised telecommunications sector has brought with it.”
Other telecommunications opportunities like instant messaging, instant information, financial inclusion, telemedicine, smart farming, e-Commerce and virtual learning have helped improve lives and businesses, Investors King reports.
Liberalisation of the telecommunications sector has helped empowered Nigerian youths and provided them with more job opportunities. Many youths are now earning in foreign currency via remote work and freelancing without having to leave the shores of Nigeria.
It means millions of foreign exchange are consistently repatriated into the Nigerian economy because telecommunications facilitate easy and affordable connection to various job pool platforms across the globe.
