THE Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) and Ciuci Consulting, a strategy and consumer intelligence company, have launched the ‘Nigeria Business Composite 10’ (NiBC 10) to celebrate 10 successful Nigerian enterprises in Lagos.
NIBC 10 is a selection of 10 successful Nigerian enterprises who have exhibited high potentials for growth and have, over the years, maintained a brilliant track record. The event is aimed at celebrating these companies whilst inspiring confidence in the Nigerian society and its potential to produce thriving businesses.
Speaking on the initiative, Acting Head, Corporate Services, NSE, Pai Gamde said: “We are delighted to partner with Ciuci Consulting on the NiBC 10 initiative. It aligns with our commitment to promoting and supporting small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Nigeria, by providing a framework that can help mentor SMEs in the country. At NSE, we have a strong support system for such companies as our ASEM board provides them a platform for growth and expansion. A platform we hope these companies will leverage in the coming months.”
In his remark, Chukwuka Monye, Managing Partner of Ciuci Consulting, said: “Nigerian entrepreneurs need to see examples of business men and women that are working hard and creating successful businesses in the same environment that many fear to explore. We have worked with each of the 10 companies who are at different growth stages and are pleased to recognize them and encourage them for what they do.”
