Now in its 5th edition, the boot camp for the competition opened in Lagos on Tuesday, August 23rd 2016, where contestants were exposed to the wonderful world of Unilever, and were assigned mentors who are seasoned business professionals, to guide them in the development and delivery of their presentations. They were also part of personal development and team building sessions, and had the opportunity to meet and interact with Unilever top executives. It wasn’t all work, as the contestants also enjoyed fun activities like talent shows, aerobics and games.

This year, out of thousands of entries from various Nigerian universities, six teams made it to the grand finale, the teams were tasked with the responsibility of developing creative ideas to market Unilever’s Close Up.
