Heritage Bank Plc, in collaboration with the Next Titan Nigeria, Bravopoints International Limited have deemed it fit to open business opportunity for Nigerian youths. This is done as they unveiled 16 finalists with big business concepts  that will compete for the grand prize of the competition.

The Next Titan is Nigeria’s entrepreneurial Reality  TV show, where thousands of potential young entrepreneurs across the country compete with one another, for a grand prize of N5 million and a brand-new car to start their dream businesses.

The finalists were unveiled in Lagos recently at a Premier/Gala Night Show,out of a total of 60 contestants that emerged from more than 2,000 budding entrepreneurs that were screened in Abuja, Port Harcourt, Enugu and Lagos.

Speaking at the Next Titan Season-4 Premiere Show/Gala Evening, the MD/CEO Heritage Bank Plc, Mr. Ifie Sekibo, urged the 16 finalists to see themselves as winners, who are striving to proffer solutions  to the current youths unemployment challenge.

Mr. Jude Monye Sekibo, who represented the Executive Director, at the event said the benefits of entrepreneurship today, cannot be over-emphasized because it is an antidote for the youth unemployment.

“In Heritage Bank, we are passionate about entrepreneurship. This is extremely relevant today given the unemployment challenges that we face in Nigeria and Africa at large. “Nothing is more fulfilling than to groom-to-empower young aspiring start-up entrepreneurs and mentor them to grow and become large corporates enlisted on the Nigerian Stock Exchange. We are dedicated to developing the next generation of outstanding young African entrepreneurs, who will shape the continent’s economies and the world at large.” He said.

He equally noted that the unemployment menace today cannot be changed by government jobs alone, stressing that the nation needs to democratize job creation. According to him, the best way to achieve this is, by creating and empowering more entrepreneurs. “We seriously need to create our own Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Jack Ma, and we need to multiply our Philip Emeagwali, Dangotes, Florence Seriki, Bankole Cardoso, Jason Njoku amongst others. Only entrepreneurs can create the millions of jobs we need to power our economy out of poverty.” He stated.

The Executive Producer of the project, Mr. Mide Kunle-Akinlaja, appreciated the effort of the sponsors and the judges of the project over the years. He maintained that the objective of the Next Titan Nigeria is to present entrepreneurship as a viable career option to young graduates, adding that the project is about demystifying entrepreneurship, and present it as what young unemployed graduates should start leveraging on to build lasting wealth for themselves and for the nation.

As a mentoring institution in the empowering of entrepreneurs in the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) sector, Heritage Bank has continued to make relentless efforts in this space to empower entrepreneurs in Nigeria through championing several empowerment schemes such as  the Youth Innovative Entrepreneurship Development Programme (YIEDP), Centre for Values in Leadership (CVL) on Young Entrepreneurship Business Training Programme (YEBTP), Young Entrepreneurs and Students (YES) Grant and Nigerian Youth Professionals Forum (NYPF), Big Brother Nigeria, Lagos Comic Con, amongst others.

Other guest speakers at the Gala Night Show on entrepreneurship, were Professor Pat Utomi of the Lagos Business School and Maxi Sam Ohuabunwa, former Managing Director of Neimeth Pharmaceutical Plc.
