The Honourable Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun through the implementation team of the YouWiN Connect Programme has reached out to prominent YouWiN mentors and youth entrepreneurship ambassadors to join the maiden edition of the YouWiN Connect Awards by nominating three entrepreneurs in each category of the YouWiN Connect Awards 2017.
One of such prominent mentors is Linda Iheme, who by the way is a personal friend of mine.
She has graciously decided to open up the opportunity to Nigerian entrepreneurs to win spots out of the slots allotted to her.
Here is how you can get Linda Iheme to nominate your business for the YouWiN Connect Awards 2017
Write a 100-word essay on why you think she should nominate your business venture for the awards. In order words, tell her why you think your business is deserving of the award.
Send your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org. The subject of your email should read “youwin_surname_firstname”.
Your entry should hit her mailbox latest December 5, 2017 by 11:59PM Nigerian time. Entries received after this deadline will be completely ignored.
I can’t stress it enough that as a Young and innovative entrepreneur that she is, what she will look out for is how you can within 100 words show how sustainable, innovative and profitable your business is.
Therefore, endeavor to highlight how your business contributes to expanding employment opportunities for the teaming unemployed youths, reduce poverty and contribute to the growth of Nigeria’s GDP.
Don’t forget to highlight the skills you have which will make the business a successful one in the long term.
If you have impressive growth figures of your business over the last few years, both in revenue as well as job creation, don’t forget to include it.
If your business has won any previous award, include it. It will lend credence to her decision to nominate your business for the awards.
In all, ensure that while you don’t exceed the 100-word mark, put up an essay that is very apt, truthful and convincing.
You might just land yourself a slot in the 2017 Youwin Connect Awards scheduled to take place in Abuja on the 19th of December, 2017.
Deadline once again: December 5, 2017 by 11:59PM Nigerian time.
Good luck as you send in your entry.
Share this with your friends and networks so they too can grab the opportunity.
