GOOGLE has promised to bring together thousands of business owners for the second leg of the Get Nigerian Businesses Online (GNB0) 2012 Web Fair, taking place at the City Hall, Catholic Mission Street, in Onikan, Lagos on April 26 and 27.
First launched in September 2011, the GNBO is an initiative aimed at helping small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) create free websites.
“The goal of the GNBO programme is to make it easier for Nigerian entrepreneurs to grow their businesses by taking advantage of the power of the web,” said Juliet Ehimuan, Google Nigeria Country Manager.
“Over 20,000 sites,” she said, “ have been created since launch, showing that SMEs in Nigeria are well aware of the opportunities presented by the Internet and are already benefiting from these.”
Commenting on the 2012 Web Fair, the Chair Person of the Women in Management and Business group (WIMBIZ), Adeola Azeez, said the Internet presented immense opportunities for the growth and expansion of small businesses in the country.
