Limited Capacity full

This event is part of #SMWEXPLORE, a series of cool, independently produced SMW events happening off-campus and around town. Get out and explore Lagos! 

We are on a mission to transform culture and society.
We are professionals, entrepreneurs, doers, and one-(wo)man revolutions.
We gather around causes - health, education, poverty, equality.

Whatever your brew of choice, Bring Your Own Mug and connect with other "ordinary" people with extraordinary ambition.

Listen to stories of individuals who are quietly making waves and impacting millions - or thousands, or tens. Meet the unsung changemakers who are transforming culture from an office desk, in front of a whiteboard, or over a kitchen stove. Discover opportunities to plug into innovative, impactful programs.

Share your ideas and connect with a community of enablers.

And of course - what's a BYOM gathering without coffee, tea and dessert? - enjoy a mug on the house!
