Every journey that has a beginning has an end in view.

We started the Facebook sponsored Aspiring Entrepreneurs: Digital for 2019 in February and we had 8 streams in 7 cities which has been a wonderful experience as we provided guidance to these aspiring entrepreneurs with essential strategies, knowledge, skills and tools to grow their business using a combination of our Aspiring Entrepreneurs Programme and Facebook digital marketing growth strategies for small and growing businesses and we recorded a great success.

However, as part of the curriculum for the programme, the participants were taught how to pitch their businesses, which we go on to select the best for each state and today, we had winners from each cohort pitch their businesses to our panel of Judges, which includes Dr. Peter Adewale Obadare the Co-Founder Digital Encode, Segun Abodunrin CEO Treas Doxas, Phil Oduor Programs Manager, Economic Impact & Digital Literary Facebook and Our Executive Director Adenike Adeyemi.

At the end of the pitch which took place on Saturday, Nov 30, the following winners emerged:

1st place Ojuolape Arojo Founder/CEO Applecart Nigeria (Lagos II)
2nd Chancey Nworka CEO/Founder HIDIROSE Beauty (Benin)
3rd place Mojisola Delumo C.E.O, Create Solutions (Lagos I).

We congratulate every one of the participants for choosing entrepreneurship against all odds and we believe that together, we can build a better society.
