The bank has launched its Second Annual Entrepreneur Showcase for the most talented female entrepreneur in Nigeria and Africa and also announced the top six finalists for the 2015 She Leads Africa Entrepreneur Showcase which will be held this month in Lagos.
Now in its second edition, the initiative, sponsored by GTBank, is aimed at beaming a spotlight on women who are driving Africa’s growth through leadership, commerce, and innovation by providing a veritable platform for young female entrepreneurs to grow their businesses across Africa and compete for $10,000 in cash prizes, direct access to investors, and international media exposure.
According to the co-founder of SLA, Mr Yasmin Belo-Osagie, “We are very excited about the judging panel for this year’s She Leads Africa Entrepreneur Showcase. The panel is made up of established and well-respected individuals from the consulting, media, and finance sectors. Each judge’s professional insight and experience will play an important role in deciding the winners of this year’s Entrepreneur Showcase. This year, applications were received from over 400 start-ups in 20 countries before six finalists were selected.”
Commenting on the development, the managing director/CEO of GTBank, Segun Agbaje, said, “Empowering SMEs across Africa remains pivotal to the sustenance of growth and development in emerging economies across the world.
