APP Student Venture Prize is designed to empower the most advanced entrepreneurial ventures by Nigerian undergraduate students. It supports individual students who have identified a significant opportunity, and whose ventures have the potential to create “impact at scale”. The prize is agnostic with respect to what sectors or industries ventures are working in, or even whether they are commercial, social, or have blended approaches. The essential thing is that a student/group of students (max team no. 4) has identified an opportunity or challenge and is thinking big about how to solve it. APP Students Venture Prize is intended to help them accelerate and scale those solutions. Winners will receive prize money, critical mentorship, and access to top business leaders in Nigeria and beyond.
