FATE Foundation Aspiring Entrepreneurs Program For Nigerian Entrepreneurs 2022

The FATE Foundation, in collaboration with Meta, is launching the 5th edition of the “Aspiring Entrepreneurs Programme: Digital (AEP Digital),” which is aimed at startup founders aged 25 to 45 who have unique business ideas.

The program takes advantage of the FATE Foundation’s AEP’s unequaled enterprise development curriculum, which covers the fundamentals of starting and building a successful business in Nigeria, as well as Meta’s digital strategy and literacy programming support for small and growing firms.

In 2022, we want to help 240 aspiring entrepreneurs from various sectors of the Nigerian economy, with a special focus on those in the education, agriculture, hospitality and tourism, and creative industries. We chose these industries because we believe they will provide high growth, high impact, and job creation for the Nigerian economy.
