Five Nigerians are among the 12 entrepreneurs shortlisted for a chance to win $100,000 and a two-week mentorship programme with Strive Masiyiwa in the Kwesé International competition #GoGettaz.
Kwesé is a channel on Kwesé TV with informative content that equips young entrepreneurs with skills to secure business funding.
Masiyiwa, a renowned businessman, entrepreneur, philanthropist and Chairman of Econet Group, owners of Kwesé TV, kicked off the #GoGettaz competition on win.kwese.com on August 18, 2017
The competition offers $100,000 for a lucky entrepreneur’s venture, both for profit or non-profit, and the trip of a lifetime to spend two weeks with Masiyiwa as ‘Kwesé Entrepreneur Fellows’ at Kwesé offices in South Africa. Kwese said in a statement on Tuesday, “Two deserving entrepreneurs – a male and female – stand a chance to win these amazing prizes.
“Contestants did not need to run an already registered business or non-profit to qualify; they only need to have an ongoing venture, for which they have clear intentions to formally register should they win the grand prize. They can even be working part-time on their ventures.”
“From September 1, a new quiz was uploaded each Friday at 12pm (CAT) for four weeks.”
