The Amazon Project TV show – For young Nigerian entrepreneurs
Young and creative Nigerians are set to get a chance to bring their dreams to life in a new reality TV show called The Amazon Project
The television series seeks to invest in Nigeria’s brightest businesses & business ideas.
Selected applicants will be vying for the prize of N10 million in seed capital and business incubation support for one year.
Much like the existing foreign counterparts, Shark Tank or Dragon’s Den, the final 10 selected applicants will pitch their ideas to the selected judges – five titans of industry who made their own dreams a reality and turned their ideas into lucrative businesses. The 10 contestants try to convince the judges – and the audience – to invest the prize money in their idea.
The judges include Folusho Philips of Philips Consulting Group, Funke Bucknor-Obruthe, Anne Ngozi Agbakoba of Numeris Media Group, Wole Faroun of NetPlusDotCom and a yet to be announced guest judge.
Describing the motivation for the show, The Amazon Project TV show website says:
“It’s a harsh environment where only the strong survive. Today’s “Business Amazon” requires innovation, smart economics and no-nonsense investors”
The Amazon Project TV show will run for 13 weeks. Innovative and smart Young Nigerian entrepreneurs who are solving complex business problems are invited to apply.
