Ahead of 2024 Conferenmce, IBCC Announces Startup Fund, Other Initiatives

In a groundbreaking move that echoes the commitment to empower, inspire, and drive positive change, the International Billionaire Christian Conference (IBCC) has announced the second edition of its meeting with the theme: power’, wealth and technology. This year’s conference will have the added attraction of the launching of startup fund to bridge the gap between Christian youths with brilliant business ideas and capital.

The 2024 edition of the meeting, fixed for Friday, January 26th, and Saturday, January 27th, at the Redemption Camp, in Ogun State Nigeria, promises to deliver a transformative experience that goes beyond the ordinary, embracing the intersection of faith, business, and technological innovation.

Announcing the details of the second edition of the much-anticipated conference, Pastor Olatayo Ajiboye, the Convener of the IBCC, said this year’s edition is loaded with attractions aimed at helping to impact Christian youths including scholarships and the launching of a dedicated funding for startups.

In what amounts to breaking new ground, the IBCC, according to Olatayo, is introducing a startup fund aimed at financing promising business ideas, and which will see bbeneficiaries selected through a rigorous pitch deck session, with the IBCC-Startup Management Board (IBCC-SMB). The Board, Olatayo, added, is made up of seasoned investors and managers, overseeing the mentorship and management of selected ventures.

In addition, he said in line with the IBCC’s commitment to education and skill development, the 2024 edition is providing scholarships for over 300 participants through the esteemed allied techno-craft learning company, Skilharvest. This initiative, he stressed, seeks to equip individuals with the knowledge and expertise necessary to navigate the ever-evolving landscape of technology and entrepreneurship.

In addition, Olatayo said the 2024 conference will witness the launch of a dynamic Billionaire Christian Community, managed by the prestigious International Billionaire Christian College. “This community is envisioned as a vibrant platform for weekly/monthly mentorship and teaching sessions, featuring influential business leaders from around the world as facilitators,” he said.

He added that the IBCC’s 2024 edition is not just an event but a catalyst for positive change, stressing that the “the convergence of faith, wealth, and technology underscores the conference’s commitment to holistic empowerment.” In his words, ‘attendees can expect not only unparalleled learning opportunities and financial support but also a sustained ecosystem for growth, guidance, and collaboration.’

Olatayo launched the IBCC last year when he brought Christian youths from together for a conference that was designed to teach them sound principles of prospering through establishing and running genuine businesses.

The movement, according to Olatayo followed a divine encounter he had in 2010 during which God promised him a ‘city without poverty’ and which then berthed a burden to build a system that would train Christian youths on sound business principles and hence set them on the path to becoming financial giants.

Explaining the thought behind the conference, he said at the launch: “We want to bring a system in place for an annual conference. God wants me to dwell in a city without poverty; recruit billionaires to promote the last phase of the Gospel; to repair the things that are not being properly done”.
