Boys Champions Changemakers Challenge
The Changemakers Challenge, an initiative of Boys Champions Foundation, presents a unique platform for changemakers and entrepreneurs to showcase their projects and secure funding to kickstart or expand their ventures. This competition welcomes young people at various stages of their entrepreneurial journey. Through a rigorous selection process, we will identify the most innovative, inventive and promising ideas, granting these entrepreneurs the chance to pitch their visions to a panel of judges, industry experts, and potential collaborators. This competitive program fosters creativity, ingenuity, and strategic acumen.
The winning ventures will not only receive essential seed funding but also various forms of support, enabling them to scale their existing ventures or bring their startup dreams to life. All selected participants will benefit from coaching and mentorship provided by seasoned entrepreneurs and industry leaders to improve their business models. This presents an incredible opportunity for entrepreneurs to transform their aspirations into tangible realities and create a lasting impact on their communities and beyond.
With the support of our partner at Boys Champions, we’re happy to implement this project with Godfrey Okoye University, Enugu, as our strategic partner.
