Three students of the National Open University of Nigeria have recorded outstanding performance at the institution’s entrepreneurship programme organized by the Directorate for Entrepreneurship and General Studies (DE&GS) NOUN.
The event came up on August 15, having a total of 100 exceptionally gifted students drafted from seven incubation centres across the country.
Saadatu Ahmad Sa’I and Monsurat Abdulrahman came first and second respectively from both the North-central and South-west incubation centres, while another student came third.
According to Miriam Obierika, the students who grabbed the three positions will proceed to represent NOUN in the North-central Universities competition.
Each student who took part in the contest displayed his or her entrepreneurship skill and was evaluated by a panel of 10 assessors that included directors from eight different universities and both internal and external authorities.
Speaking, the Director of DE&GS NOUN, Samuel Awolumate, expressed that the assessment benchmark covered various pivotal dimensions, a well-conceived approach to solving Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and clear demarcation from existing solutions.
It also encompasses the current state of idea development, a comprehensive market analysis integrating SWOT analysis and strategic considerations, finance, feasibility and sustainability deliberations, as well as an assessment of overall comportment.
