Mr Olaniyi Yusuf, Managing Partner of Verraki Partners, on Thursday, urged entrepreneurs and business owners to leverage opportunities that technology had presented them in the last one year to grow their businesses.
Yusuf gave the advice at a webinar with the topic: ” Developing Digital Mindset for Business Opportunities and Growth “, organised by the CRC Credit Bureau Ltd, a data, analytics and technology company, in Lagos.
He said that technology, which was driving changes in the emerging world, had become inevitable, urging Small and Medium Enterprises not to underestimate its powers.
“To be a part of this, the big thing you need to do is to change your mindset and begin to have a digital mindset.
“A digital mindset is a mindset that is curious, that seeks to know more about why things happen; and a mindset that always asks the question Why.
“A digital mindset is a mindset that takes exponential form, it takes geometric progression that things can scale, and it is persistent, inclusive and accountable.
“So, for you and I to have that kind of mindset that is open to digitalisation, we must take some steps and changes into consideration,” he said.
