The first student venture prize in Nigeria, serving as a tested model for entrepreneurship education and empowerment in Africa.
Nigeria Student Venture Prize is designed to empower the most advanced entrepreneurial ventures by Nigerian undergraduate students. It supports individual students who have identified a significant opportunity, and whose ventures have the potential to create “impact at scale”. The prize is agnostic with respect to what sectors or industries ventures are working in, or even whether they are commercial, social, or have blended approaches. The essential thing is that a student/group of students (max team no. 4) has identified an opportunity or challenge and is thinking big about how to solve it. Nigeria Students Venture Prize is intended to help them accelerate and scale those solutions. Winners receive prize money, critical mentorship, legal advisory, technology support and access to top business leaders in Nigeria and beyond.
