To enrich our student’s learning experience and opportunities, the University of Ibadan has signed an MoU with the Emerging Young Entrepreneur (EYE) Initiative, a non-profit that aims to identify young aspiring Agripreneurs across African Universities, foster interest in the minds of African youths to explore the Agribusiness sector, and create a network of young Agripreneurs who will build the foundation for an emerging capitalist Africa.
Arising from the said MoU, our student can now apply to the Eye Africa Business Plan Competition at https://eyeafrica.org/. To qualify for the competition, applicants must:
1. Be full time students of University of Ibadan
2. Be certified to be 100, 200, or 300 level students at the time of application
The competition process includes programs that will equip participants with life changing Agribusiness knowledge and entrepreneurship skills, and give participants access to:
· A pool of mentors
· Prototyping and Incubation Support
· Business networks
