Enterprise Exchange 2016

Are you creative? Do you stand out from the crowd? Do you value a challenge? 

Are you brimming with innovative ideas or solutions which can make a difference in Nigeria? Do you have a passion for change? Then you just might be the one we are looking for.

As a follow up to the successful launch of the Enterprise Challenge in 2015, the AFE Global Development Foundation in partnership with Small Medium Enterprise Development Agency of Nigeria  and  A.G Caspian Resources proudly present the 2016 edition.

The Enterprise Exchange is an online competition which is designed to promote the development of entrepreneurial skills in Nigerian youth aged 18 to 35. The first cycle gave rise to 1 winner who won grants of 1M million naira, had the opportunity to attend capacity building sessions at the prestigious AFE Enterprise Hub for Entrepreneurship and were mentored by globally recognized organisation such as  Shexton Group, Drofika and Novarch B.V Properties.

This year, the programme partners have decided to take things up a notch! In addition to the prizes offered last year (i.e. grants, training and mentoring session with the Founder) there will be capacity building sessions offered by the AFE Entrepreneurship to the top 20 participants. This year’s winners will also get the opportunity to meet with and be mentored by entrepreneurs working in similar sectors in Nigeria and the UK.
