The search for the best student company to represent Nigeria at the Junior Achievement Africa Company of the Year competitions kicked off this month with the Lagos regional competition. The event took place on the 7th of June, 2018 with twelve student companies from eleven schools presenting their products and services to judges Mrs. Leila Fowler-Amba of Vivian Fowler Memorial College, our Executive Director Mrs. Simi Nwogugu, and Mr. Boye Oshinaga of Riby Finance (an alum of the Company Program). The students were so amazing that our judges could not pick only one winner to advance to the National competition so they picked three! Students displayed very innovative products from headphones that can be shared simultaneously by four people from Vibz Naija, a student company from Victoria Island Secondary School, to a flash drive + lighting phone charger from Voltage, a student company from Day Waterman College, to a mobile, rechargeable traffic light for road wardens from Inventive Explorers, a student company from Caro Favored Schools, Ajegunle. It was really a great sight to behold and filled us all with hope for Nigeria’s future. Special thanks to our awesome judges for doing a great job and we congratulate all winners especially the first place winner, Inventive Explorers from Caro Favored Schools.
