A young Nigerian Entrepreneur, Chidi Nwaogu, has recieved the ‘Most Needed Company in Africa’ award at the just concluded 2018 African Entrepreneurship Award organised by BMCE Bank of Africa.
Chidi Nwaogu, owner of a Publishing start-up company, “Publiseer” clinched the award out of the over 4,900 companies in all regions of Africa reviewed by a team of 400 mentors.
The exercise which took place between the months of March and May earlier this year saw Publiseer emerged the winner of the said category. The prestigious award offers $1 million to all eligible African entrepreneurs with extraordinary businesses or an idea for one.
According to Chidi, “Publiseer is a digital publisher focused on meeting the growing needs of independent African writers and musicians from low-income communities. We won’t relent in our resolve to continue in breaking new grounds”.
Thousands of entrepreneurs from all the fifty four African countries who put in for the award were made to go through questions and answer sessions about their idea, market, scalability and sustainability, receiving free mentoring and individual scores.
