Business Plan Competition

You say you are not a creative writer, that you only write to make money as a business person. Well, here's your chance.

Nigeria Leadership Initiative Business Plan Competition

The Nigeria Leadership Initiative Inaugural Business Plan Competition (BPC) is an effective program to build entrepreneurship skill and kick start Small & Growing Business (SGB) development.

Objectives include:
  • To identify entrepreneurs with high potential business ideas;
  • Provide selected entrepreneurs with training, mentoring and access to capital;
  • Act as a channel for equity and loan funds to the resulting SGBs;
  • Stimulate economic development through the creation of jobs and growth businesses.
Top fifteen entries will participate free of charge in a business plan training program at the Lagos Business School and audience with potential investors to pitch their business. Top three entries will also win cash prizes to develop their businesses. (Quick question: I wonder why the top fifteen entries would go for a training again? I think it should be last fifteen...)

The deadline for entries is August 14th, 2009.
