United States based innovations expert visits Ugwumba in Nigeria

This week in Abuja, we received one of our International Advisory Board Members and partner, Mr. Emil Ekiyor, a highly celebrated innovations expert in Indiana, USA.

Welcoming him to Abuja, our President, His Excellency, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu thanked Mr. Emil for the long-standing partnership we have enjoyed with him and his team of professionals, including Prof. Stephanie Fernhaber; Dr. Joe Albano; Prof. Dileep Rao, Jason Williams, Phoenix Jackson and others since 2019.

As the CEO of InnoPower Indy, Mr. Emil Ekiyor has facilitated several startups development and funding programs for members of the Ugwumbs Startups Community since 2019. The most recent being the Origins Pre-seed program in collaboration with Elevate Ventures.

His visit to Nigeria is a prelude to the forthcoming 2024 InnoPower Minority Business Week being organized by InnoPower in partnership with Elevate Ventures in Indiana, USA.

The visit culminated in a high-level partnership meeting with His Excellency, Senator Rochas Okorocha, the President of Africa’s largest education charity, the Rochas Foundation which has provided FREE education to over 40,000 children from less privileged families in Nigeria and across Africa.

According to our Executive Director, Hon. Remy Chukwunyere, this visit is the beginning of a new phase for us at the Ugwumba Leadership Center.

To God be the glory!
