Mentorship motivation

  • I want to give back to the startup ecosystem and entrepreneurs coming up

I am a beneficiary of Mr. Tony Elumelu’s philanthropic gesture and other free Entrepreneurship training which have ignited the zeal to give back to the society. It was this zeal that Entrepreneurship propel to organize training in my church in 2019 by inviting two other friends who I meet during the Tony Elumelu Entrepreneurship programme in 2015 to be part of the training.

The decision to participate in this Mentor Training programme is the enable me acquire more skills and training to mentor upcoming entrepreneurs.
