2020 Ecosystem Predictions
The beginning of each year is an ideal period for actively reflecting on personal and professional outcomes, as well as making predictions and plans for the upcoming year. At Endeavor, we spend a lot of time thinking about the promise of high-impact entrepreneurship for Nigeria and the challenges our ecosystem faces as we move towards a more sustainable model for startup formation, support, growth and productivity. We are excited about the potential of this generation of entrepreneurs to transform the economic landscape of our country, but we remain keenly aware that the challenges the country faces will require innovation and the ability to quickly harness the digital opportunities before us.
At the end of 2019, we asked some friends of Endeavor, across various roles and industries within the entrepreneurship ecosystem in Nigeria, to share their predictions for 2020. We consider these predictions to be an inspiring challenge and a learning opportunity; to read what key doers, builders, and thinkers are focused on, hopeful for or worried about. We intend to expand the project year after year, and over time, these predictions will record how our ecosystem evolves in character and sentiment, beyond tracking investment numbers.
