I work for a non-government, non-profit organisation in Nigeria. We promote waste reduction, reuse and recycling as means of environmental sustainability and health as well as wealth creation. Currently, we are working with small and medium scale enterprises (SMEs) to explore market opportunities and financing opportunities for the products of the SMEs. We want to link the SMEs we work with to the platform that you have created.

The three following ways are the means we want to use to support the SMEs:

1. Help to develop sound/winning business proposals (with your expert support)

2. Facilitate their participation in the  Viridris Africa event coming up in October

3. Facilitate the process to have Viridris Africa in Nigeria. 

We are involved in water treatment, biogas, waste recycling, plastics etc.

Kindly give us more details on how we can collaborate with you to implement this.
