If you haven’t been following up with TECNO Mobile on their latest initiative to support SMEs – the TECNO LightUpYourDream promo then I wonder what you’ve been up to lately.
Upon the successful launch of the brand’s newest smartphone series, TECNO Spark and Spark Plus, the Africa’s leading smartphone company had rolled out an empowerment project to reward 2 aspiring Nigerian entrepreneurs who had successfully moved their businesses from ideation stage to the real world.
The activity attracted entries from young entrepreneurs across different business sectors with each entrepreneur sharing insights about their businesses and their long-term goals. After a series of reviews and assessments, 10 budding entrepreneurs were selected to pitch their ideas to a panel of business experts and investors where 2 lucky winners will cart away with N1million each to help scale their business to the next level.
