In the ever-evolving landscape of global commerce and investment, opportunities for growth and innovation are constantly emerging. Recently, our CEO, Kola Oyeneyin had the privilege of participating as a speaker in the prestigious US-Africa Summit, where he and other industry leaders convened to discuss the theme “From Creative Industries to Sports: Financing the New Growth Sectors.” The summit served as a pivotal platform to explore the dynamic intersection of creativity, entrepreneurship, and investment within the African continent.

According to the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), Africa’s share of the global creative economy remains significantly low, accounting for only around 2.9% of global creative goods exports, representing $58.4 billion and less than 1% of the African GDP. 

He was joined on the panel by Tom Ara, Tom Ara, Partner, Co-chair, Entertainment Transaction Practice, DLA Piper, Innocent Idibia, CEO Hypertek Entertainment and Denim Richards, the CEO of Opulent Entertainment Group. 

During the summit, he shared invaluable insights derived from years of experience navigating the intricate landscape of investment. With a keen focus on emerging sectors such as creative industries and sports, he explained the unprecedented potential for financial growth and sustainability within these dynamic spheres. By leveraging innovative financing models and strategic partnerships, he underscored the transformative impact that investment in these sectors can catalyze, not only in driving economic prosperity but also in fostering social and cultural development across Africa.

Beyond economic gains, he articulated a broader vision of sustainable development anchored in the principles of inclusivity and empowerment. Through strategic investments in the creative industries and sports, he underscored our commitment to creating prosperity for Africans through alternative investments.

In conclusion, his participation in the US-Africa Summit served as a testament to Opportunik’s unwavering commitment to driving growth and catalyzing positive change across the African continent. As we continue to forge ahead on this journey, guided by our core values of ingenuity, vision, and trust, we remain steadfast in our mission to empower and elevate Africans across the world and unlock the full potential of Africa’s dynamic economies.
