About the Initiative
The N1 Million Naira Business Grant for UNIBEN Students’ initiative is a Student-focused Business Plan Competition by Anyibe Foundation targeting young student-entrepreneurs who are able to exhibit the entrepreneurial spirit in the Student Community. The Competition is designed to identify these student-entrepreneurs that recognise opportunities with a plan to harness them, encourage the development of innovative student-driven ideas with potential for expansion, and increase student-based enterprises.
The Anyibe Foundation was founded by Comrade Anyanso Ibe Anyanso, alias Sir Wizzy, an alumnus of the University of Benin from the Faculty of Life Sciences, Department of Environmental Management and Toxicology. Over the years, the Foundation has been involved in a series of humanitarian activities including but not limited to payment of tuition fee for indigent students, offsetting of medical bills for the less privilege, amongst others. Beneficiaries of the various schemes under the Foundation are spread across the country.
The 2022 maiden edition of the Anyibe Foundation’s N1 Million Naira Business Ideas Competition (AF-BIC), which held for one week, saw over a hundred students from the various faculties at the University of Benin jostling to make it to the final ten for the N100,000.00 grant award each.
