Akin Alabi - Founder/CEO, NairaBET

That’s me :-)

I started my business in 2003 with just N3,500 creating and selling information products like Ebooks, Cds, audio tapes and manuals.

From there, I proceeded to launching a seminar and training company specializing in teaching and consulting for other young people starting their own small businesses.
I later tried my hands (and failed) in publishing.

I then tried my hands successfully on other businesses with the most popular being Nigeria's first sports betting website, NairaBET.com.

I will like to share my story with you including the mistakes I made along the way.

Why Do I Host this Event Every Year?

You see, as a young person living in Nigeria, you face a major problem

But why do some people despite all the challenges in Nigeria succeed and the majority doesn’t?

  • You live in a country where despite how much skills you have, you are faced with a lot of disadvantages.

  • You receive very poor education. Let’s face it, our universities are crap.

  • You do not have access to social amenities that in foreign countries is - electricity, internet, libraries, etc

But despite these odds, myself and many other entrepreneurs survived and achieved their goals...

If We Did It, You Too Can!

 I didn’t have a lot of money when I started. My first business was started with N3,500 only.

My Dad and mum are not multimillionares.

We definitely did not have any connections. I didn’t have any rich Uncle or anyone who mattered enough to get me a job at Shell or in a Government parastatal.

Many of the richest guys I know in Nigeria, didn’t finish University. Some didn’t even go at all.

So how did they make it?

I will tell you. It’s because. . .

They Cracked The Code

Cracking the code, means ignoring the "facts" and forging ahead to do things differently.

If you want to make it here in Nigeria FAST, if you want to truly and quickly “close the gap”, the trick is to surround yourself with SUPER successful professionals, entrepreneurs and go-getters, people who have figured out how to navigate this maze called Nigeria.

This is the ultimate success shortcut.

And this edition of the Youth Enterprise Conference will give you the opportunity to learn from these experts and entrepreneurs as they share the secrets they have used to grow their business and brands to EXTRAORDINARY levels.

What Would You Pay to Change Your Life Forever?

  • What will it be worth to take your income from where it is to 10X that, if even if you’re starting with zero today?

  • What would you pay to spend ONE FULL DAY with me?

  • What questions do you need answered?

  • What do you need to know to blow up?

  • What do you need help with? Social media, branding, getting known, closing the sale, building a team, investing?

Or at the very least, wouldn't it be worth to simply know the mistakes to avoid?

If your answer is yes, then here's good news.

I am going to let you come into the
Youth Enterprise Conference...For FREE!

I am reserving an entry card and seat for you at this year’s Youth Enterprise Conference, and you do not have to pay anything.

It’s a zero naira cost, totally and absolutely free.

Jason Njoku (Founder, Iroko TV) Says:

Akin and I have been friends for many years. When he invited me to speak at YECO of course I jumped at the chance. I had not attended previously so had no expectations.

When I walked into the hall at Eko Hotel I was blown away by the standing room only attendance. Thousands and thousands of young enthusiastic faces. The future of Nigeria was in that room.

Those in attendance were serious people. They were there to learn, hear stories and be inspired to go out there and build the future SME's this country needs to kick start our country.


SPECIAL N5 Million Giveaway

Here is the gist.

The Akin Alabi foundation will be supporting 50 attendees of this year’s Youth Enterprise Conference on their journey to success by providing them with N100,000 each.

This money is to be specifically invested into their business idea.

One of these 50 people could be you but the first step you have to to take right now is to book your seat to attend this year’s youth enterprise conference.

Mark Essien (Founder, Hotels.NG) Says:

When I got invited to speak at YECO, I did not realise that there would be so many people, that the energy would be that high, and that I myself would end being inspired and motivated by the other speakers.

I would really recommend this even to every aspiring and established Entrepeneur - the energy is high, the motivational factor is incredible and the learning is life-changing.

Japhet Omojuwa (CEO Alpha Reach) Says:

I had a great time at #YECO3 In 2017, more as a listener and observer than even a speaker.

It was a great time to listen to all the speakers share their personal stories and insight revolving around the power of persistence, foresight and courage, themes I have always found necessary for my own life. I’d certainly recommend YECO to anyone, especially young people looking to advance in their chosen fields and career.
