    Union Bank is running the Campus Innovation Challenge to discover and support students engaged in entrepreneurial activities across tertiary institutions in Nigeria. 

    We want to see innovative, technology-driven ideas to address social and business challenges in Nigeria. 

    We are looking for bright ideas in the areas of agriculture, education, financial inclusion, millennial banking, creative arts and other solutions that address local needs.

    The Top 3 selected candidates will get cash funding towards the execution of their ideas and incubation support via the Co-Creation Hub (CcHub) incubation services. In addition, they will get partnership opportunities with Union Bank and our network of partners around the focus areas of the challenge.

    Over the subsequent six months, the top three ideas will be supported with a range of services focused on product development, distribution and business modelling to turn their ideas into fully working products to launch in early 2019. Winners will also be able to leverage Union Bank’s strategic networks to bring their ideas to life.

    We are looking for great ideas related but not limited to financial accessibility, agriculture, education, millennial banking and creative arts. Innovative and scalable ideas in other areas are also welcome..
