9mobile telecommunication company has mentored owners of small businesses in Plateau State through its Hack platform in the bid to grow their businesses better.

Hack is a business and networking mentorship programme facilitated by business experts who share business ideas with participants and groom them to scale their businesses.

In a statement signed by 9mobile’s Public Relations Lead, Chineze Amanfo, the Hack mentorship programme which has been held in several states was taken to Jos to help thousands of small business owners in the state to promote and grow their businesses.

Speaking at the event, 9mobile’s Head of Brands and Creative Services, Adeola Kayode, said business is the driving force of any economy and involves turning problems into opportunities to make a profit.

He said at the end of the Hack seminar, the entrepreneurs would be better positioned to expand their businesses and overcome their current challenges.

“We are here to share knowledge and insights with you on how to grow your business and the kind of opportunities that are available to enable you to excel. We have experts to discuss and share knowledge of the challenges faced by SMEs with the view to providing solutions. There will also be a product exhibition by some of the participants,” he said.

Kayode explained that Hack was aimed at boosting the business acumen of SMEs, noting that one of the main challenges faced by SMEs was the lack of access to finance and markets.

He said there was a need to show SMEs a framework on what they should do to maximise opportunities and partnerships when they are available.

Head of Human Resources at 9mobile, Sherriff Popoola, who spoke on the topic ‘Resourcing for Small Businesses: The Role of People in SMEs Growth’ said the biggest companies today started as SMEs.

He said customers are the key element that makes businesses grow, adding that people who want to operate SMEs must understand what they set out to achieve.
