In his keynote address, Information Technology investor, Hyacinth Iheanachor, advised Nigerians entrepreneurs to keep up with changing trends in technological innovation to grow their businesses and to avoid being displaced by “disruptive technology”.


Iheanachor who explained disruptive technology as improved innovation which displaces old ways of doing business said the trend has put many entrepreneurs caught unguarded out of business and misery. He said, “The commonest experience we can share in Nigeria was the introduction of GSM or mobile phones which almost immediately collapsed the dependence on landlines and analogue phones.


“We must realise that disruptive technology is not about negativity. It has improved efficiency in banking, education, media, virtually all facets of our lives. All businesses need to maximise its benefits. In a world ruled by technology, you either shape up or fall out in your business,” Iheanachor concluded.
