“At Keystone Bank, we recognize that to have a healthy nation and a thriving economy, we must create a positive mind-set amongst the youths and provide them with the basic tools to start & grow their own businesses.

“Therefore, the idea behind ‘Spark up your brand’ is to trigger a fresh approach to self-development and leverage business insights for growth.

“There are so many challenges associated with birthing a business in the country but by plugging into the ideas and experiences shared by experts in the industry at this Masterclass, the minds of the youth have been exposed to cutting edge information on how to recognize opportunities , start & build their  businesses.  “Beyond the training, we also provide great support for youth businesses and hand hold them to nurture and grow the entrepreneurial ventures”, Osotule noted.

At the event, participants (startups) were taught on how to position their brands for business growth and investors.

Keystone Bank is a technology and service-driven commercial bank offering convenient and reliable solutions to its customers.
