Although there was an initial scare from the rain, that caused attendees to arrive late, the eventual turn out was impressive.

In the typical house style, five young entrepreneurs were already lined up to take turn in sharing the story of their startup operations.

First on the stage was Samuel Adekanmbi pitching 080Callers, a platform that helps businesses market their products via phone calls, reaching out to leads within minutes.
