About the company |The members of Innovative Minds produced programmable DOT Matrix LED displays which they were able to sell to the small business owners within the Ajegunle community who were not otherwise able to afford such an elegant way to advertise their products and services. The product was sold with a smart remote control that enabled owners to change the messages scrolling across the screen as often as they deemed necessary without having to engage the services of an IT professional. Over the course of the school year, the team upgraded to an Eco-friendly version that didn’t require a power source due to shortage of electricity supply in their community.In addition to their LED display they also sold black shoe polish as a mini-product to support the development of their main product. It was a fierce competition but Innovative Minds emerged the winner because of the combination of their savvy use of technology, effective marketing and meeting a critical need in their community.
