INTERSWITCH GROUP, SILICON VALLEY PRODUCT GROUP, OTHERS EMPOWER TECH COMMUNITY WITH SCHOLARSHIPS AT 2023 INSPIRE ASPIRE CONFERENCE

The 2023 Inspire Aspire Conference, headlined by Interswitch Group, one of Africa’s leading integrated payments and digital commerce companies and orgnized by Silicon Valley Product Group (SVPG), created a major buzz within the product community with thousands of participants trooping into the insightful 4-day product-focused sessions.

The event, led by industry experts, took place at the Eko Convention Centre in Lagos and attracted thousands of participants over the span of four days. SVPG Partners, including Marty Cagan, Martina Lauchengco, and Christian Idiodi, all distinguished veterans in their field, delivered compelling presentations focused on products.

During an engaging panel session titled ‘Leading from the Front,’ Princess Edoosagie, Head of Product Leadership and Agile Governance at Interswitch Group, fervently urged leaders and employers to take proactive steps in empowering their teams with the essential tools and experiences necessary for success. She stressed the reciprocal responsibility of product professionals in actively fostering their own growth by actively seeking opportunities and strengthening their skill sets. Edoosagie’s insightful remarks showcased Interswitch’s impressive track record of driving innovation and setting the standard in the product development arena.

Interswitch’s commitment to supporting the product community was evident as the organization, in partnership with SVPG, sponsored approximately 300 scholarships for deserving product communities, including the Empower Her Community, Non-Tech in Tech, People in Product, and the Interswitch Developer Community, among others. This initiative aligns with their collective vision to inspire greatness across Africa.

“As advocates for Africa and African talent, Interswitch places a high priority on partnerships and platforms that enable individuals and communities to thrive throughout Africa,” stated Rebecca King, the event’s convener and representative of the Innovate Africa Foundation. She went on to say, “At the core of the Inspire Africa Conference is our fundamental mission: to propel the African product community onto the global stage with unwavering energy. We take pride in facilitating a vibrant exchange of knowledge between local talent and the global product community, all while being supported by Interswitch, a pioneering brand that has driven technological progress across Africa.”

Throughout the conference, the organizing team carefully curated a series of INSPIRED and EMPOWERED workshops designed to empower founders, enrich product practitioners, and provide product leaders with relevant industry insights and trends.

The impact of this conference is sure to resonate throughout the African product management ecosystem, serving as an inspiration for innovation and a source of empowerment for professionals in the years to come. Interswitch Group, in collaboration with SVPG, has set a remarkable example of how cooperation and dedication can fuel the aspirations of an entire industry. We eagerly anticipate witnessing the enduring influence of this event as Africa’s product community solidifies its presence on the global stage with vigor and enthusiasm.
