1. Please, tell us a bit about yourself: where are you from and what is your background?

My name is Nnamso Esu, 33 years, a native of Ikot Esu in Ika Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. I worked in the palm oil industry for 6 years. Before starting Esunam Enterprises Nigeria, i was trained by African Management Initiative (AMI) in business management and entrepreneur in the youth entrepreneurship program through Federal Government of Nigeria. I began working with my father’s palm oil processing as a trainee manager after my degree in Electrical Electronics Engineering. I am the founder and managing director of Esunam Enterprises Nigeria. Currently, I’m working to establish a palm fruit plantation and processing factory in my community that will create jobs for the teeming youth in the community while increasing our country GDP.

2. Can you describe your idea or project in two sentences?

I want to promote our local palm oil through creativity and innovative packaging and healthy living through the consumption of palm oil.

3. What is unique about your idea/project and how does it benefit mankind?

What makes my idea unique is the branding. Branding is very important to any product; a product always known by its brand name, image, and quality.I have chosen this word SUPER for the palm oil brand because it can be pronounced very easily, literally and anyone can understand it. Meaning high quality, tasty food, healthy life, easy cooking, well package and traditional flavor. As the idea is new, I am welcoming my customers by giving them high quality, tasty food, healthy life and well-packaged product. it will contain no artificial sweetener, color and flavor, no animal ingredients and preservative will be used in producing my product. Also, the taste, packaging, and introduction of 250ml and 500ml to reduce the price for low-income families.

4. Describe yourself as an entrepreneur in one sentence

A new generation innovation.

5. How do you deal with people that doubt your abilities/initiatives?

There’s a difference between having initiative and being a pest. I’ve found that a good gauge is to read the feedback am getting. If someone is excited to be talking to me, engaging me, and asking questions about my ideas, then I know this is someone I want to continue working with. On the opposite end, if am receiving terse responses that cut to the chase, generally it’s time to direct my efforts elsewhere.

6. Where does your passion lie?

My passion lies in the innovative ideas that solve people problems.

 7. What are you afraid of or what keeps you up at night?

How to fund the establishment of my idea.

8. According to you, money is a synonym for…..

A large amount of money paid to someone, for example by an insurance company or as a prize in a competition.

9. If you could rid the world of three things, what would they be?

  1. Hunger
  2. Poverty
  3. Unemployment

10. What are the benefits you take from the Entrepreneurship Campus?

Networking with young creative people of all the world and the online entrepreneurship learning.

11. What do you like more about the Entrepreneurship Campus?

The opportunity giving us to share ideas to the development of our communities.
