#SBS2017 : All the Winners In the Over N2.7m Small Businesses Support Fund

We are happy to announce our winners in the 1st Small Businesses Support Fund #SBS2017. We got thousands of entries via the hashtag but the sorting process was made a lot easier once those that did not meet the stipulated instructions were removed from the prospective pool of winners. We are glad to see some of the winners are committed to excellence and #MadeInNigeria . For those that did not win this time, this is only a first, you can win during the next opportunities. Those of you whose businesses are in Lagos should apply for the Lagos State Entrepreneurship Fund via ‪http://lsetf.ng/pilot-scheme  , you can also engage them on Twitter @LSETF. You never know. Have my best wishes.

At least 70 per cent of the businesses are owned by women. All the winners will have their accounts funded between Saturday 7th January, 2017 and Friday 13th January, 2017. More details will be released about the winning businesses once they are formally engaged. The total sum to be shared is about N2.7m in cash and website development services, apart from the media and professional support. Winners will also get some business development training from our volunteers.
