To really change the world, we have to help people change the way they see things. Global betterment is a mental process, not one that requires huge sums of money or a high level of authority. Change has to be psychological. So if you want to see real change, stay persistent in educating humanity on how similar we all are than different. Don’t only strive to be the change you want to see in the world, but also help all those around you see the world through commonalities of the heart so that they would want to change with you. This is how humanity will evolve to become better. This is how you can change the world. The language of the heart is mankind’s main common language.
The events of Saturday the 10th day of November 2018 will remain evergreen in the minds of the participants of the second edition of Startup Anambra annual program tagged #StartupAnambra2.0 which held at De-Geogold Hotels Awka.
The event which was convened by Mr Pascal Okeke, The Chief Executive Officer of Bigcode and his co-Conveners, Mr Chuka Chukwurah and Mr Daniel Dallas brought in policy makers, stakeholders, startups, successful entrepreneurs, young and emerging entrepreneurs as well as experts from the academia to connect, learn, expose and discuss ways to attract investment to startups and founders residing and operating out of Anambra State and the South-Eastern part of Nigeria.
Speaking after the event, Mr Pascal Okeke said that: “StartupAnambra gathering is an annual conference designed to educate and connect people with brilliant ideas to people looking to invest in ideas, solutions and businesses as the ultimate goal of the group is to awaken the consciousness of younger generations/entrepreneurs (emphasis on those operating within the Anambra State/South-East corridors) to opportunities and trends within the global entrepreneurial community”.
He further said that this second edition which was tagged #StartupAnambra2.0 is the perfect opportunity for investors to discover innovative startups in Anambra State as well as the South-Eastern part of Nigeria stating that Africans can solve Africa’s problem if they borrow a leaf from the men who built America. We need individuals to solve specific problems and become successful at solving them.

After the event, the participants just like Oliver Twist sat at the feet of Chukwuemeka Fred Agbata “CFA” in the company of Daniel Chinagozi, Pascal Okeke, Chukwurah Chuka and Micheal Orekyeh asking for more.
Each and every of the mentor charged the listening attendees to be diligent, disruptive and determined to break barriers, sharing their journey as they took turn to add their respective input.
