Here’s something hooge for you!

In preparation for a more result-driven 2022, Borderless Trade Network surveyed her members to better serve them. 

Guess what they found?  FUNDING!

Yes, they found out that at the core of the needs of entrepreneurs is funding.

Certainly, you can resonate with this need, right? 

In line with meeting this important need, Borderless Trade Network will, on the 2nd of March, host women in business and in transition to a great time of learning how best they can multiply their business income at the International Women’s Day Conference themed “Break The Marketplace Bias–10x your income”.

What if the BTN crew told you that you’d get a chance to ask these speakers anything you need to know about money?

It’s time to build that business empire . . . We’re done with the small stuff.

SAVE THE DATE!

All the best,

Borderless Trade Network Presents Project WINHER 2021

It is no longer news that several MSMEs and early-stage ventures had to wade through strong currents when the pandemic hit. However, while its impact was felt globally, the effect was not the same for everyone.

It’s no exaggeration to say that that businesses owned by women, especially those of color were severely devastated in the wake of the Covid-19 rife. A World Bank survey conducted in May 2020, assessing over 26,000 business owners and managers in over 50 countries with an active Facebook Business Page, revealed that about 43% of female-owned MSMEs were more severely affected than 34% of the male-owned business counterparts who were also affected.

With an imbalance that was too glaring to ignore, OBA Inc. in February 2021, held its first Borderless Trade Women in Business Salon Series which was targeted at realizing the global impact of raising women who are well-grounded in trade, business, and investment, as well as utilizing the AfCFTA protocols to their favor. Sensitizing women on the possibilities of international trade and integrating actionable systems that can take their business beyond the borders of the current location or even continent.

Piggybacking off the success of our Saloon series, OBA Inc. presents project WINHER; A 4-stage investment education, financial inclusion, and wealth creation project for women of color.

Project WIN (Women in Investment) HER introduces its maiden edition which will focus on exposing women of color in Nigeria and the UK, to digital money and wealth creation opportunities, increasing the number of women actively thriving in the global investment market.

Olori Boye-Ajayi, speaking on behalf of the other facilitators – Inya Lawal, President, Ascend Studios Foundation; Tomie Balogun, Financial Educator & Investor; Sanmi Adegoke, CEO, Rehoboth Property International; Olayinka Anthony, CEO, CoWorthy Capital; and Tobi Arayomi, Financial Investor & CEO, Q plus— says, “We believe that the women who participate in this project will gain a high level of financial literacy that will demystify the subject of investment and enable them to recognize high ROI opportunities.”

The importance of inclusion will, through this project, be emphasized while also showing how trade & investment go hand in hand, with the Borderless Trade Network of OBA Inc. being the trade hub and Project WINHER, the investment hub.

Project WINHER is set to hold on Sunday, 8th August 2021, and Sunday 15th August 2021 by 6:30 pm WAT.

This project is proudly supported by the Office of the Honorable Commissioner of Trade and Investment to Vanuatu to Nigeria and South Africa; sponsored by Cersei Partners and OBA Inc.

The book is packed with resources that can help entrepreneurs seize the opportunities associated with exporting out of Africa, as well as how to go about it and provide opportunities that will encourage growth.

A lot of African entrepreneurs are looking to expand beyond Africa but are often stuck as they do not know where to begin or what exactly to do when it comes to export. There are so many demands to be catered to beyond the shores of Africa, and ‘Borderless Trade’ by Olori Boye-Ajayi, answers all the questions about exporting. 

This book is the ultimate guide for the average entrepreneur looking to be more, as Olori through her firsthand experience in the world of exporting, takes the reader through the simple steps required to start exporting. The book goes through the A-Z of exporting about anything out of Africa.

Olori Boye- Ajayi (Author)

Borderless Trade Synopsis:

The big question for a lot of people is, WHAT NEXT? This question is predicated on the assumption that there is something to look forward to as though we’re not already in that “what next” phase. For the African entrepreneur looking to expand in an economy riddled with so much uncertainty, a new type of introspection is essential, one that sees beyond borders. Africa, with its population of over 1.2 billion people within its 55 member states is able to sustain its businesses through international trade, however, “Export” seems like such a far-fetched option for entrepreneurs as questions like “How do I start?”, “What do I do?” and “Where are my customers?” inundate their minds. These questions have prevented entrepreneurs from expanding beyond their home countries to cater to the demands that exist beyond. Enter TheBorderless Trade book by Olori Boye-Ajayi. This book is the ultimate export guide to the entrepreneur eager to be more.

Through her first-hand experience in the world of exporting, Olori Boye-Ajayi takes the readers through simple steps needed to start an arm of exporting anything showing that exporting today is easier than it was 20 years ago and is way more than seaports and containers; technology has closed the gap between businesses and their customers, both near and far.

The premise of this book is that everybody can export, even you.
