Private Equity: A Bridge or An Albatross? Role of the Capital Market
When faced with difficulty in raising finance from Nigerian banks, private investors, and stock exchanges, many SMEs reach out to foreign Venture Capital or Private Equity. However, a few of them have been burnt in the process. We believe that both local and foreign financing can be successful when done right.
The “SME Finance Series” is designed to intimate SMEs with the available finance options, qualification requirements, and the post-disbursement expectations of the financiers.
In this first webinar, we bring together CEOs of our three stock exchanges (FMDQ, NSE, & NASD), as well as Nigerian and International business leaders to showcase the key ingredients necessary for successful public financing of Nigerian SMEs.
