Young Naija Entreprenuers is an initiative created to promote, encourage, and celebrate young Nigerians that are doing impressive things in the business world despite the many challenges that are associated with the Nigerian environment.
We recognize the brilliance of the young Nigerian mind and we are determined to make the world know about them. The world may have painted a negative representation, but we are determined to re-paint our own picture.
We dream of a time when, by the hands of the youth, the destiny of the nation will change, and the momentum of that change will ricochet all around the world. We dream of a time when Nigeria will return back to its glory days, and the green passport will once again command the respect of former days. This is our dream, this is our hope, this is what drives us.
The initiative was founded on the 3rd of January, 2014 by the trio of Olusegun Egbeyinka, Ime Ekpon John and Valentine Ogbamebor.
