Immersed in the success of the Innovation Series for the past six years, Verdant Zeal, a frontline media agency, which is also the company responsible for the forum, has made known its decision to expand its reach beyond Lagos and as far as outside the country.
The series, which is organised as a platform to examine the question of Africa’s
development, hone in on opportunities for growth while focusing on
leveraging inherent strengths, would run as mini bites of the
main event in form of roundtable across states in the country, while it
will start the expansion beyond Nigeria to other countries in West
“As we institutionalize the success around the Series, there is also
the necessity to take the conversation abroad particularly along West
Coast of Africa. What it means is that the Series has become something
of a public trust,” the organisers said.
Calls were made during the previous edition by participants for the event to be taken to other parts
of the country.
The platform has been generally accepted, causing conversations among both the public and private sectors.
