Most startups around the world fail. So, it's safe to say that the process of progressing as a startup isn't easy. You will need all the support and experience you can get from other businesses that have passed the startup phase or are still considered startups and are still thriving at what they do.
That's why at the VIP exclusive Lagos Startup Expo masterclass session, we will be having Oshone Anavhe teach the session titled, "Turning adversity to advantage: How to move your startup from surviving to thriving." You can get your VIP tickets on the Lagos Startup Expo website to attend this masterclass session.

In 2023, he plans to expand the operations outside Nigeria to at least four African countries (Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania, and Zambia) in a bid to reach 1,000,000 farmers by the end of the year.
