The Youth Enterprise with Innovation in Nigeria (You WIN) Programme
The Youth Enterprise with Innovation in Nigeria (You WIN) Programme is a collaboration of the Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Communication Technology, and the Ministry of Youth Development that launched an annual Business Plan Competition (BPC) for aspiring young entrepreneurs in Nigeria, in line with the Federal Government’s drive to create more jobs for Nigerians. The programme is jointly being implemented with Nigeria’s private sector, who provides the funding support.
The You WIN programme was created to generate jobs in the country by encouraging and supporting aspiring entrepreneurial youth in Nigeria to develop and execute business ideas that will lead to job creation. The programme will provide aspiring youth with a platform to showcase their business acumen, skills and aspirations to business leaders, investors and mentors in Nigeria. SMEDAN is the monitoring Agency of the programme. The rationale is to stimulate the MSME sector in accordance with the present administration’s economic aspirations in employment generation.
