We thought it was going to be easy to select three winners for the Mrsceonaija’s budding entrepreneurs funds (MBEF).  We were so wrong. There were many great ideas and we must say that Nigerians have it in them to succeed. It was tough to select the final 3 but we did after careful consideration of key factors.

The selection team : Mrs. Tolulope Adedeji, Mr. J. Omojuwa, Mr. Rotimi Williams, Mrs Aisha Ahmad went through the applications carefully and selected the top 3.

There were several other good entries so do not be disappointed if you were not selected. Keep trying.

To the winners, please drop a comment below and we will reach out to you with further details on funds and mentoring program.

The top 3 are:

  1. Fatima Mohammed
  2. Chichi Eriobu
  3. Emmanuel Oyebanji
