The NIBC 10 is a selection of 10 successful Nigerian enterprises that have exhibited high potential for growth and have over the years maintained a brilliant track record. According to The Nigerian Stock Exchange and Ciuci Consulting, organisers of the event, the Award celebrates companies that have exhibited huge growth potentials whilst inspiring confidence in the Nigerian society and its potential to produce thriving businesses.
The Acting Head, Corporate Services, NSE, Pai Gamde said: “We are delighted to partner with Ciuci Consulting on the NiBC 10 initiative. It aligns with our commitment to promoting and supporting small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Nigeria, by providing a framework that can help mentor SMEs in the country. At NSE, we have a strong support system for such companies as our ASEM board provides them with a platform for growth and expansion. A platform we hope these companies will leverage in the coming months.” Further iterating the importance of the event, Mr Chukwuka Monye, Managing Partner of Ciuci Consulting said: “Nigerian entrepreneurs need to see examples of businessmen and women that are working hard and creating successful businesses in the same environment that many fear to explore. We have worked with each of the 10 companies, who are at different growth stages; and are pleased to recognize them and encourage them for what they do.”
