In Nigeria alone, we have impacted positively on the lives of over 5,000 youths and women. We started in 2014 as Ezihe Foundation and transitioned as the Ugwumba Center for Leadership Development in Africa in 2019 to be able to reach more young people across the African continent, starting with Nigeria.

The 2020 Ugwumba Enterprise Challenge is on…

This year, our focus is on Team Building as a critical factor for the success of startups. We want to use this edition to encourage startup founders to build teams.

“We come to these young entrepreneurs as angel investors. That is why we specifically look out for those whose ideas would have died if we did not provide them this opportunity to actualize them”
