Highlights From the Max Out Press Conference

The official press conference for the upcoming Max Out event, powered by the WINHER initiative took place on Wednesday, July 28, 2021 in a physical and virtual setting. The WINHER initiative is a 4-stage investment education, financial inclusion and wealth creation project for women of color.

The press conference started with an opening prayer, led by Mrs. Tomie Balogun, Co-Founder/CEO of Twelve, followed by a welcome address from the President, Borderless Trade Network, and founder of project WINHER, Mrs. Olori Boye-Ajayi, who gave the overview of the project and expected outcome. The initiative seeks to sensitize and educate women in business on how to look for other opportunities outside Nigeria. The WINHER initiative is not looking for a short-term approach, but an inclusive one.

The stage 1 of the Max Out event will hold on two different days: 8th of August, 2021, for women of color living in Nigeria and 15th of August 2021, for women of color in diaspora. The intent of the Max Out event for women in diaspora is to build confidence about investing in Nigerian businesses.

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 that, “The WINHER initiative is a 2-year project in 4 stages that will have technical and knowledge partners in order to win more women,” with a goal of reaching 30,000 women by 2025.

Tomie Balogun explains that financial education goes beyond literacy, but also teaching women how to earn. According to her, there is a clear gap for women in terms of financial literacy and investment, and this is one of the reasons why Twelve has come on board as a knowledge and technical partner for the WINHER initiative.

Mr. Sanmi Adegoke highlighted that Rehoboth will be focusing on educating the black community on property investment and how to own a property in the UK.

Mr. Oluwafemi Fayewa, Vice President Cersei Partners and one of the panelists emphasized on the intentionality of the inclusion of women in investment opportunities.

The Honorable Trade and Investment Commissioner of Vanautu to South Africa and The Federal Republic of Nigeria, Commissioner Olufemi Badejo, who is also one of the project partners, speaking on the importance of the WINHER initiative says, “If you educate the girl child, you educate the whole community”, which he would like to achieve through this partnership.

Ada Chintua, the Programs Development & Partnerships Officer, OBA Inc. and the Special Adviser to the Olori Boye-Ajayi, President Borderless Trade Network, noted that the WINHER initiative also seeks to close the funding gap that women experience and get them sensitized and educated about investment.

The WINHER Initiative is targeting women of color between the ages of 21-45 because research has shown that the investment opportunity networks for women is low.

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.
