Last year, 100 young entrepreneurs received business-defining grants that helped grow and advance enterprise.

This year, the March 8th Initiative is expanding in terms of reach and scope. First, the Entrepreneurship Programme has been re-organised into 4 categories providing more opportunities for young Nigerians between 18 and 35 years old.

Category 1: My Big Idea Business Challenge | Grant Sum: N100,000

Do you have a small-scale business that could use some injection for enlarging your inventory, or have an idea that solves a troubling issue in your area? We look forward to reviewing your idea-entry under Category 1 of the 2021 March 8th Entrepreneurship Programme 2020. Your entry should be in the form of an elevator pitch on video that summarises who you are, what you do, what problem you are trying to solve, and how you would solve the problem with the grant, if successful. This video should not exceed 60 seconds.

Entry Criteria

Start with your full name and location. You MUST send your video via WhatsApp to 08095798693, and thereafter upload your video on either Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and use the hashtag #FriendsOfProf, and tag @march8thng. Because of the social transformation dimension of the challenge, applicants are required to post their video entries on social media.
