Google Nigeria in partnership with digital payments company Flutterwave will run a series of business clinics for 5,000 merchants in Nigeria on skills and tools needed to leverage the web for business growth.
The clinics will give participating businesses hands-on experience of how Google and Flutterwave products could be used to grow their businesses.
Nigeria has over 37 million micro, small and medium-scale enterprises, which account for more than 84 percent of jobs in the country.
“Helping these businesses grow is a net positive for all parties including Google. Beyond contributing to the growth of the country’s digital economy, when these businesses better learn about online tools, they join a community of businesses and users that are leveraging Google’s tools to further drive their growth” - Google Partners Lead, West Africa, Tolulope Akinyele.
