The Convener, Pascal Okeke, dropped some inspiring lines of messages for the participants to take home.
Though he started by saying, “I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples”, but Pascal recognises the importance of providing shoulders-of-support to one another to gear-up starup ecosystem in the State.
Hear him: “Heroes didn’t leap tall buildings or stop bullets with an outstretched hand; they didn’t wear boots and capes. They bled, and they bruised, and their superpowers were as simple as listening, or loving. Heroes were ordinary people who knew that even if their own lives were impossibly knotted, they could untangle someone else’s. And maybe that one act could lead someone to rescue you right back”.
