Uturn Concepts 2009 Stakeholders Forum tagged “Vision To Funding”, will hold at the Eko Le Meridien Lagos July 3, 2009.
Uturn Concepts www.uturnconcepts.com empowers non-profit organizations and corporations for effective social impact by helping build credibility, capacity and attracting sustainable funding to achieve their objectives.
It will be recalled that the firm piloted a highly successful stakeholders’ forum at the same venue last year, which attracted several multinationals and indigenous corporations and NGOs, including Chevron, Standard Chartered Bank, Dangote Group, Bellview Airlines, UBA Foundation and MTN Foundation.
Doyin Oguntona, CEO and Co-founder of Uturn Concepts said, “I identify strongly with the funding crisis in the sector as I had hands on experience with those same issues as a former leader in the sector.
Oguntona expressed gratitude to corporations that participated in last year’s forum for their effective knowledge sharing, noting that several progressive collaborations ensued as a result of the forum; notable is the collaboration between Standard Charted Bank and Ajegunle.org.
“We look forward to sharing much needed funding strategies, information and practical hands on funding support efforts to build the necessary capacity, credibility and funding needed to be sustainable for the long haul. Our heartfelt gratitude goes to all our consultants, participants and corporations for their incredible support and their willingness to share best strategies for success. We hope our involvement in bridging the gap between the for- profit and the non-profit sector in Nigeria will demonstrate to others the need to help build, nurture and provide sustainable resources for the social sector in Nigeria,” she said.
The forum series will also hold in Accra, Ghana at Labadi Beach Hotel July 10, 2009, and Douala, Cameroun at Le Meridien on July 7, 2009.
