Applications for Global Student Entrepreneurship Week 2021 are now open
Tom-Chris Emewulu, Founder and President of SFAN provides insight into what led to the creation of the event.
“When I was a student entrepreneur, a certain academic figure told me that it was a terrible idea and I might not graduate. But I graduated with a First Class honour. Of course, it was a challenging process because I had to learn a lot. Hence, I created Student Entrepreneurship Week to help co-dreamers and innovators find direction and build their careers.”
