Our alumni party has come and gone with a lot to remember!
Everyone seemed to have a good time catching up and meeting one another in a more relaxed environment, an opportunity to network across different batches for over 100 alumni in attendance.
While there was music performance from Emily (Austin of Batch 12), Ayodeji, Daniel and Ibrahim presented their spoken-word performances and Happiness delivered an acapella version of Simi’s Joromi. It was an amazing time seeing alumni express their gifted talents which made the event more lively and engaging. Also, Alumni had the opportunity to buy clothes, shoes, bags and jewelries during the yard sales.
During the party, we launched the WAVE Entrepreneurship Challenge (WEC) -- a competition set aside to encourage alumni who have existing businesses but need little financial support to boost the business. We hope to encourage more entrepreneurs within our alumni. Alumni are to present a case for why they need the cash and how it would boost their businesses. The two winners will be awarded cash prizes of N50, 000 and N30, 000 respectively at the anniversary party next year.
In appreciating our dedicated and supportive alumni, Ayodeji Olatunde (Mint by Eat Green), Hamidah Akano (Zest Ng) and Solomon George (Nok By Alara) were shortlisted for the Alumna/Alumnus of the year. Solomon George won the award.
It was wonderful to see everyone at this year’s party; thank you to all our alumni that made it. Please do not forget to keep in touch with us!
