Tecno supports entrepreneurs with N7m in new campaign
In the just concluded Light up Your Dream campaign, the third edition, Tecno Nigeria has rewarded seven entrepreneurs with N1 million each.
The competition, which started in April, and is part of the TECNO Spark 3 launch activities, had many young Nigerian entrepreneurs with various business interests ranging from agriculture to technology, sharing their business dreams with the hope of winning the one million naira prize money.
Tecno explained that reviews and assessments were tough, “but at the end of the month-long activity, 10 entrepreneurs were shortlisted, even though only nine showed up. The selected nine people pitched their ideas to a distinguished panel of judges that included the CEO of 360 Group, Noble Igwe and Nollywood actress, Juliana Olayode.”
Speaking at the event, PR and Strategic Partnership Manger, Tecno Nigeria, Jesse Oguntimehin, stated that ‘although the initiative was an experiment the brand decided to carry out, over the years; it has been a huge success’.
He also said that the initiative was conceived with the intention of ‘making a positive impact on the different local communities in Nigeria by empowering budding entrepreneurs to achieve their lifelong dreams because TECNO really is for Nigerians’.
At the end of the pitching, two winners were selected based on their communication skills, creativity, and business acumen.
The two winners, Amaka Judith, a shoemaker and Mercy Orlu, a soap maker, went away with N1 million each. There were also winners across the country, who bought a SPARK 3 smartphone, got a raffle ticket and also emerged as millionaires in the regional raffle draws. They are Alex Mbamalu, Fatolu Kemi, Maduakolam Chinaza and Ugbesia Efe who were also presented with their prize money.
