AAE Nigeria Chapter

by Association of African Entrepreneurs


Nigerian entrepreneurs operate under unfriendly business environment including poor access to finance, difficulty in getting licenses, multiple taxes and illiteracy. The small entrepreneurs need to be rescued. The wave of militancy in Nigeria needs to be checkmated. Hopelessness needs to be arrested. The AAE Nigeria Chapter project will register entrepreneurs for associate, fellow and affiliate levels and empower them through knowledge and information-sharing, training/mentoring and advocacy.

Nigerian entrepreneurs operate under unfriendly business environment. The Business Environment and Enterprise Performance Surveys (2007) identified fifteen (15) problems and challenges facing entrepreneurs in Nigeria. These include: access to finance, access to licenses/permit, corruption, courts, crime/theft/disorder, customs & trade registration, electricity, inadequately educated workforce, labour regulations, political stability, practices informal sector, tax administration, tax rates


We hope to help alleviate these problems and challenges within the limited resources of AAE Nigeria through knowledge, information-sharing, partnership, advocacy, investment clubbing, grass root training et cetera. This can only be realised with your moral support, annual dues, donations and participation in our programmes.

Long-Term Impact

AAE Nigeria has a number of projects/programmes such as Civic Projects and Lobbying, Community Outreach, Mentorship on Investment Clubbing, Production of Handbook on Investment Club, Membership Handbook and Operational expenses. These would contribute to Nigeria's social and economic development on a long-term basis.
