Leke Alex Adedipe, Partner, DOA; Lloyd Onanighon, Head TMT, Stanbic; Ijeoma Obatoyinbo, MD, FBN Quest Funds; Eghosa Omoigui, Echo VC; Idris Saliu, Co-Founder, Vanso; Mrs. David West, Director, Lagos Business School; Soibi Ovia, Partner, DOA; Niyi Duale, Managing Partner, DOA
Legal, TMT and Finance experts have called for more investment in the telecommunication, Media and Technology, (TMT) sector in a bid to grow the country's GDP and create employment opportunities. 

This call is coming at a time when the country's economy is currently propelled by crude oil and the country is in dire need of more investments outside of this resource. 

Speaking during the inaugural business series organised by Duale, Ovia & Alex-Adedipe, (DOA) a fast-growing full-service commercial law firm providing expert legal services in corporate commercial law and dispute resolution, Adeniyi Duale, managing partner of the firm said Nigeria must collectively address the inhibiting factors to attracting investment into the telecommunication, FinTech, E-commerce and all other sectors of the economy that can help Nigeria realise it's full potential and not continually depend on oil as mainstay of the economy. 

According to him, in the last 10 years there have been increase in the number of companies who have gotten funding from investors. 

Duale said "As at 2008, there were about four companies who had received funding but today they are about 20 and we are grateful that your are panelist. We are passionate about this industry and we are keen on supporting TMT companies from inception through various stages of their growth and cycle (which range from raising seed capital financing, early stage investments, growth capital as well as exits)."

He disclosed that DOA also assists investors in identifying and carrying out proper legal diligence on targeted vehicles or companies in the sector as well as providing structuring advice and documentation to give effect to transactions. 

He noted that the breakfast session which focuses on investments in Nigeria's TMT market is apt as it seeks to address development in Nigeria and Africa as a whole. 

Duale added that the inaugural edition of the DOA Business Breakfast Series seek to stimulate discussions and resolutions that can generate possible roadmaps for an industry that is itself disruptive and can assist the government's growth and recovery plan. 

During the panel session, Akintoye Akindele, Co-Founder, Synergy Capital Managers, advised tech entrepreneurs to ensure investor engagements are very memorable and have a proper business preposition. 

"You must have a good business model and must be able to explain your business. You must be sure of the capital you need to drive your business model. You must also get the right people that will provide a legal framework around your business idea," Akindele added.

Obinna Ekezie, managing director, Wakanow, who also spoke during the panel session said Wakanow saw an opportunity and decided to create value to customers. 

"We identified lack of transparency, inability to make payment online and buy tickets as fast as possible. So, we used technology to create solution. This led to huge uptake for customers who needed these services," Ekezie said.
