JGC Scholarship for Entrepreneurship and innovation

So about my amazing week, I was privileged to be a part of the launch of a project that is set to empower young women and men and raise the next generation of entrepreneurs. I met Jennifer Jemedafe online recently, she reached out to me and mentioned that she was launching a new project for young entrepreneurs. Of course I was happy to be a part of it, I didn't even know how big this project was until I got to the UN information center that I realized how much work had gone into this.

We can either choose to focus on the opportunities and good things happening around us or wallow in self pity while sharing sob stories about the state of the nation. I choose the former and I say, this is one of the best times to be an entrepreneur. Every other day, there is something happening, influencers everywhere, changing the game! I tell you, it is not all gloom and doom.....

The event was full of inspiring great people. +Bimpe Onakoya gave an inspiring speech about her entrepreneurial journey. Professor Abiodun Denloye, of the center for entrepreneurial studies, Lagos State University represented the VC of LASU and launch a moving campaign video produced by the students of LASU on violence against women. Professor Ralph Akinfeleye of the department of Mass Communication, Unilag was also there to unveil the unilag video on stopping violence against women.

#stopviolenceagainstwomen
The launch was timely as it was within the 16daysactivism under the #heforshe project supported by the United nations to say YES to women empowerment and NO to Violence against women. They have been a huge support for the project so far. Intel too was represented there as they have a mission to empower up to 5 million women in entrepreneurship over the next few years.

All in all it was a great event.

Now to introduce the project and the face behind this laudable project.

 +jennifer jemedafe  is the CEO Jaytech Global Concept.The company is into PR , Marketing and Strategy and they are also Ambassadors for #entrepreneurship in Africa.

So I quickly took a selfie with Africa's Mark Zucheberg, +Gossy Ukanwoke hehe
