The Nigerian Student Venture Prize is designed to empower the most advanced entrepreneurial ventures by Nigerian undergraduate students. It supports individual or group of students who have identified a problem, discovered significant opportunities to profer solutions and whose ventures have the potential to create “impact at scale”
I must say a big thank you to Edugist for this opportunity. The days at the boot camp were indeed awesome. Met great and innovative undergraduates, learned a lot about business startup and development, improved my communication, presentation, listening and speaking skills. For the first time; I was at the city of Calabar, I spoke on radio to the people of Calabar, I had the opportunity of meeting the commissioner for trade and eCommerce, Calabar. And these were all because of Edugist and APP Student Venture.

In one word ‘‘mind-blowing’’. My experience was far beyond mind-blowing, eye-opening and enlightening. The classes were filled with a lot of premium content and business facts, tailored to put a young student entrepreneur on the right track for success. Beyond the knowledge and my amazing time with other young Rockstar finalists, Calabar was a wonderful play to stay for a week. It’s a peaceful and neat environment. And I would love to visit again to enjoy the richness of her culture and people. On behalf of my team back in OAU, we say a very big thank you to the event sponsors and partners; APP Ventures, Windsworth Hostel and Edugist for the opportunity not just to have a dream but be able to execute it.

I must confess it was an amazing experience. I have not gotten over the euphoria. From being notified that I was shortlisted, to boarding a plane for the first time, to staying in Calabar for a week, to the aerobics sessions, exposure to wide view of entrepreneurial classes, and pitching our ideas to the great LIONs. I am still marveled. And I really appreciate APP Student Venture and Edugist for giving me this opportunity. I am highly grateful.“
