We partner with Virgin Atlantic and Zenith Bank to deliver the Enterprise Challenge in Nigeria. The online competition invites young entrepreneurs in Nigeria submit their business ideas and plans to a panel of Nigerian and UK experts.

Winners receive a mentoring session, a grant to develop their businesses, and a scholarship to attend a five-day entrepreneurship foundation course at the Branson Centre for Entrepreneurship in South Africa.

Over 7,000 young Nigerians have already entered the competition, and the competition has reached over 14 million people through television and social media.
