Call to applications : LEVEL UP! Speed Mentoring Night

Previous Opportunity

Deadline : 21st January 2018

Africa’s fashion and creative industry is growing vibrantly, however certain factors such as industry fragmentation, huge knowledge and skills gaps, limited resources and high barriers to entry, (ILO, 2014: BOF, 2016 and British Council, 2016) are hampering the sustainable development of the sector.

In response to their growing community needs, The Assembly hub has launched its Mentorship Scheme to support the development of emerging talent, entrepreneurs and startups in Africa’s fashion and creative sector. The Mentorship scheme will run period cohorts throughout the year.

However, recognizing that not everyone in the community can be mentored at once, The Assembly is still giving creatives an opportunity to get advice and insights in a fun and relaxed environment, through its new Speed Mentoring Night event series – Level up!

LEVEL UP! is a Speed Mentoring Night like no other for creatives working or studying-  Fashion, Photography, TV, Media, PR, Advertising or Creative Direction. The event will allow 30 pre-selected young and established creatives and professionals, meet and connect with 8 industry leaders such as Tokini Peterside founder of ArtX and TP collective, Adesuwa Onyenokwe  publisher of TW magazine, Isioma Onochie Aihie, CEO Grey Velvet Stores and Chuka Nwobi founder of DDB Lagos, get career and business advice, show off their portfolios, discuss projects/ideas and network with like-minds.

Event Date: Saturday 27th January 2018
Event Time: 5PM
Event Location: Workstation

Registration: deadline is January 21st 2018.
