Meflyn Anwana Entrepreneur First Class Story Prize: Winners receive cash prizes

Spread the love

The Meflyn Anwana Entrepreneur First Class Story Prize ran from 1st February 2021 – 29th May 2021.

The competition had the aim of providing support of over N450,000 worth of cash prizes to young entrepreneurs who have distinguished themselves in their entrepreneurial journey and also following through with training, mentorship, accelerator enablers and business enablers to ensure that the story prize winners and featured entrepreneurs are equipped with the needed skills and competencies to inspire an entrepreneurial revolution in Africa.

We had over 200 entries from across Nigeria on our platform. The stories shared by the entrepreneurs in the competition were inspiring and affirmed the resolve of Nigerians to rise to the challenges of solving problems in society using the tool of Entrepreneurship.

We are fulfilled that a lot of business linkages and networking took place on our platform as entrepreneurs got access to investors, customers and fellow entrepreneurs.

By our established criteria, the top three winners were announced as follows:

Gold Prize:  Glory Okon – N200,000 (How I started crotchet making from home with low funds)

Silver Prize: Udo-Akagha Inyang – N150,000 (How Ict Has Become My Tool For Driving Digital Literacy in Akwa Ibom State)

Bronze Prize: Nsikakabasi Nse Ebong – N100,000 (Venturing into fashion: Fashion pays my bills and fees)

On Friday 6th August 2021, the prize-awarding ceremony was held at the Ibom E-library, Uyo. The event was attended by a cross-section of entrepreneurs and guests. Our winners were awarded their cash prizes at the interactive event.

We are grateful to our partners: Hajem consults, Gale Multimedia Limited and the International Tech Alliance Network for their support and partnership.

The Meflyn Anwana Entrepreneur First Class Story Prize competition was a huge success. We promise to be back with the second edition soon.

We admonish everyone to keep the entrepreneurial drive and dream alive!

Signed.
