The Challenge was officially launched by the British Council in partnership with Virgin Atlantic, Zenith Bank, and Samsung, on the 3rd of February.
In search for a new “breed” of home-grown entrepreneurs, the 2016 Enterprise Challenge calls on young Nigerian entrepreneurs, within the ages of 18- 35 who have forward thinking, creative and innovative ideas/solutions which are business oriented and focused on making a positive impact.
If you have any idea/solutions which are in line with the current strategy of Nigerian governments to drive for change within less active sectors of the economy which promote economic diversification, then get on board the challenge.
The Challenge is expected to take place in three cycles over a four week period.
