Nigeria will be receiving its own televised SME pitching competition titled The Amazon Project.
The show aims to provide entrepreneurs with the necessary ways to take their product to market. AIS Media along with other partners will help entrepreneurs discover new ideas, validate their concepts as well as try to assist them with financial support in the form of investments.
The show is accepting applications from thousands of Nigerian startups, who will undergo major scrutiny by a consulting organisation. This same organisation will shortlist businesses who will be selected to pitch their idea on the show. These pitches will undergo further scrutiny from a distinguished panel of judges.
The judges consist of the executive chairman of the Phillips Consulting Group, Foluso Phillips; MD and CEO of Zapphaire Events, Funke Bucknor-Obruthe; the founder of Numeris Media Group, Anne Ngozi Agbakoba and the MD and CEO of NetPlusDotCom, Wole Faroun.
