Young people in Africa are creative and full of ideas. Many times their fresh outlook on life is what will take our society to the next level. However, most times they are hindered by the lack of opportunities to showcase their creativity, coupled with inadequate mentoring and insufficient capital.
The SIC entrepreneurial challenge is about discovering talents with bright business ideas, with a focus on nurturing them so that they can add remarkable economic value to Africa. The challenge will put these ideas to the test of real-world business situations and operations, equipping the contestants with the right business knowledge necessary to optimize their ideas and make it more relevant and marketable.
The SIC entrepreneurial challenge is an initiative created to establish and foster a strategic mentorship ecosystem for entrepreneurs in higher education institutions across Nigeria. The AWP Network in collaboration with Team Inspire have joined forces to put the spotlight on young people with ideas capable of solving the problems that are unique to us in Africa and to give them the much-needed mentorship and capital support.
