The Managing Partner of Verrak Partners, Mr Olaniyi Yusuf, has advised small and medium entrepreneurs to change their mindset and imbibe a digital mindset.
Speaking at a webinar titled, ‘Developing Digital Mindset for Business Opportunities and Growth,’ Yusuf noted the imperative of digital mindset for success in today’s world.
His words, “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.”
The techie, therefore, charged entrepreneurs and businesses “to have that kind of mindset that is open to digitalisation,” by taking certain “steps and changes into consideration.”
Though he did not dwell on the changes, Yusuf urged entrepreneurs to leverage opportunities that technology had presented to them in the last one year to grow their business.
Also speaking on the need to leverage digital technology, the Director leading Google’s Business Strategy in West Africa, Ms Juliet Ehimuan, explained that business opportunities were largely driven by technology last year.
According to her, business companies that had taken advantage of digitalisation were attracting foreign direct investments, based on the innovation with which they were running their businesses.
