It was a fun event celebrating innovation and entrepreneurship alongside some great food, music, and dancing!
But the highlight for us was announcing the winners of our #HackTheGerms Innovation Competition.
Last month, we hosted the #HackTheGerms Pitching Session for our 5 semi-finalists during Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) so it only made sense to bring the 3 finalists together and announce the winners during the GEW Closing Ceremony.
So who won?
We’re happy to announce that the overall winner was Nupe Project, a team of 3 industrial designers: Funfere Koroye, Dammy Onanuga, and Michael Omotosho.
We also awarded the Best Student category to the Covenant University Team: Osamuyi Adonri, Akinlesi Love, Usua Idorenyin, Soetan Samuel, and Iyanuoluwa Aladegbeye.
Thanks to everyone who applied and supported to help us #HackTheGerms!
We’re so excited to work with Nupe Project and the Covenant University Team to turn their ideas to social enterprises.
