In a bid to empower youths in the country, Stanbic IBTC has expressed its commitment to promote entrepreneurship.

The bank disclosed this at the 2019 Stanbic IBTC Youth Leadership Series (YLS) held in Lagos, stressing that the youth empowerment motivational series was conceived as a way to energize the entrepreneurial spirit in young Nigerians.

 Chief Executive, Stanbic IBTC Holdings PLC, Mr. Yinka Sanni, noted that the platform seeks to engage the youth in shaping the future of the nation.

He stressed that IBTC appreciates that the future is closely woven with that of the energetic, innovative and hard working Nigerian youth.

According to him, the bank from the very beginning has always had the passion to empower youths considering that the Stanbic IBTC brand, which is 30 years this February, was set up in 1989 by an innovative and audacious 33-year old Nigerian, Mr Atedo Peterside.

Sanni said that he sees youths as see business leaders, successful entrepreneur, scholars, innovators, and high profile professionals with whom they can partner with.

Stanbic IBTC’s youth-centric focus is evident in its support for a number of initiatives directed at the youth as well as its establishment of programmes such as the YLS that help to engage the youth at a deeper level.

He highlighted some of the initiatives to include the Stanbic IBTC innovation lab in Yaba, Lagos, set up to support techpreneurs, financial technology firms and startups; sponsorship of the Higher Institution Football League and being a major sponsor of the yearly Social Media Week, among other youth-oriented initiatives.
