At Play Network Nigeria, we truly believe that without an empowered youth, the future is uncertain for any society; no matter how developed or undeveloped it seems! Simply put, the “Be a Boss in 30 Seconds” competition is an initiative of the Play Network Nigeria that aims to empower an aspiring young entrepreneur to start following his/her dreams today!
Even though there are only a handful of our youth that can win in this competition, we want to use this opportunity to encourage every young person reading this post right now- if you’ve got an idea, start today! No matter how small the steps you can take might seem, be consistent, and never take your eyes off the prize! No dream is too small or too big. As long as the dream is yours, put in the work, and you will surely succeed!
The first season of the “Be a Boss in 30 Seconds” competition aims to give One Million Naira Only (₦ 1,000,000) every month to ONE aspiring young entrepreneur. Please note that this young entrepreneur must not necessarily have what the world sees as the next biggest idea! We are looking for ideas that work, which are relatable, capturing, reasonable and achievable at start up level with the money to be won!
Throughout the duration of this competition, we hope to keep things fun, concise and straight to the point. Our goal is to receive as many entries as possible so as to encourage as many young people as possible! As you might have already guessed, there’s only one catch- your pitch must be made in 30 seconds only! Yes 30 seconds!
