Gidigba was conceived as an online network community for independent business people (entrepreneurs) to gather, share resources, referrals, experiences and support. The name GIDIGBA actually comes from the meaning “standing strong”. It is specifically designed for small businesses/enterprises who have committed to stand strong through the challenges and make a success of their businesses with social networking functionality and face to face events.
Gidigba provides a reliable platform that will enable business owners and entrepreneurs in Nigeria integrate with an organized local community, providing support to this local community(the Gidigba community) to overcome their binding constraints (being, limited access to Market, Information, Support, Finance, Infrastructure, Technology –M.I.S.F.I.T) which will help them not only stay in business but thrive in business.
Every entrepreneur whether you are a startup, or a small, medium enterprise regardless of the industry seeks to have the right information on market opportunities, achieve critical mass or economies of scale and have a sizeable network of fellow entrepreneurs to share ideas with. Running a business can be hard, lonely work. Step away from the isolation. Boost your visibility. Come meet others who get it – ones who know the challenges and rewards of running your own show. They are the best people to offer support, resources, referrals and advice. That’s networking with a purpose!
