Join us on Thursday, October 19, as we sit down for breakfast with Ndidi Nwuneli,  the Co-founder of LEAP Africa and AACE Foods. She will  be sharing the story of her journey into the world of entrepreneurship and the focus of our discussion will be 'Patience'. For this month's Breakfast Club, we'll be stepping out of CapitalSquare, and enjoying the amazing atmosphere (and food) at the Sao Cafe in Lekki.

About Breakfast Club

Breakfast Club is a breakfast lecture and networking series, where we bring together a small group of entrepreneurs over tea, coffee, and an array of breakfast foods, to network with and learn from the stories of seasoned business people who've walked the path of entrepreneurship before us.

Our Breakfast Club meetings are small and intimate: groups of 12 or fewer people, where we can freely ask questions and have conversations, and everyone can leave as a better person and a better businessperson. The programme includes a short talk, a Q & A session, and conversations over breakfast.


The entry fee is N5,000 only, to cover breakfast and refreshments. Keep reading to find out how to register.
