Servosavvy Limited has launched an application aimed at helping employees to embrace entrepreneurship.
The firm, in a statement, described the app, called ‘BipEDGE’, as a dual fintech and edutech platform that provides employees with the tools and support they need to make the transition from being an employee to becoming an employer of labour.
It said, “This is a timely entry for retirees, employees and all who want to move into paid employment, with the growing focus on entrepreneurship all over the world and in Nigeria specifically, BipEDGE will give major boost and increase to entrepreneurship, considering that SMEs have been contributing about 48 per cent of the Nigerian GDP for the past five years (Nigerian Bureau of Statistics).
“A PwC SME survey reports that SMEs account for 96 per cent of businesses and 84 per cent of employment in Nigeria. This means that BipEDGE will be a major boost to and increase the positive impact of entrepreneurship and SMEs.”
The Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Mr Timothy Ikhide, said, “BipEDGE has come to make transiting from paid to self-employment not only possible but easier.
“Three out of every five employees today are interested in leaving paid employment but cannot, except by force. BipEDGE has come to give employees the power to choose to either leave or stay in paid employment.”
