  1. Getting this far on my idea Eduheal is most encouraging. I have a vision and the Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship competition gives me the opportunity to put it out there, work on it, receive great inputs and refined it in the most possible way to make a great impact in Nigeria and beyong. Each will have been a barrier to me but this great campus unlike the rest of other competitions that look at ages 18 and above, I am giving this ample opportunity and I will never take it for granted. It is my great desire that Eduheal created the needed impact. then I will be fulfil as a young person.

  3. Good afternoon / good evening my name is UMAR IMAM the 22 years old founder of AFRIK Designers. I’m super excited to be part of this great competition. For an entrepreneur like me from Nigeria to be recognised in the top 10 finalist of my category of the youth idea across the continent it means so much not just to me or my start-up, but also to my Country. It tells many young people that it’s possible! And we should keep pushing and Use our innovation and the resources we already have around us to create the kind of charge we want to see.
