We got one of those inspiring testimonials which motivate all of us on this community service. I thank our faculty for their time, efforts and commitments. Providing guidance to our young people is one of the ways we can help them in this age of economic paralysis and turbulence.
“Sir, I discarded my business plan and used the Week 1 business canvas on the Challenge Assignment. Today, I am happy to share that less is indeed better: we received $25,000 from an investor. I want to thank all the faculty especially Mr. Azeez Lawal. His course on Fundraising with African sense is the best ever. I also thank you for a statement in one of the class videos, “Your customer can be your investor. Believe this… the best investors are customers”. This investor is a customer and we will begin by serving his company even though we are a separate company.” from a Tekedia Mini-MBA participant.
