#UEC2021: 1st Preliminary Pitching Competition

Happy new week, good people of Nigeria and many thanks for always being there for us! It is because of your kind and encouraging words that we are motivated to do more for our youths and women.

As you already know, the UEC 2021 Boot Camp ended on Saturday, November 6, 2021 and we are happy to announce that all the participants who diligently went through the well packaged Boot Camp are ready to take their ideas and startups to the next level.

Therefore, in continuation of our search for the best 3 ideas that shall receive one million naira (N1,000,000) each at the grand finale of the 2021 Ugwumba Enterprise Challenge in Abuja, we hereby announce that the first preliminary pitching competition is scheduled to hold between November 10 – 20, 2021.

During the pitching competition, all the participants are expected to send us their pitch decks in video formats for assessment by the public and our panel of judges.

All videos pitch decks submitted shall be uploaded on our YouTube channel at to enable online voting by the general public and assessment by our panel of judges before the selection and release of the top 50 participants who shall move to the 2nd preliminary pitching competition.

We therefore invite the general public to get ready for this joint exercise. Let’s continue to make history, together!

Many thanks, once again to our partners at Abuja Enterprise Agency; InnoPower Indy USA; NazranRoth UK; Meek Ventures; LeadershipLaire UK; African Youth Development Foundation; Equanet, etc
