The management of The Next Titan, an entrepreneur TV reality show and the Season 2 winner, Davies Okeowo, have applauded SIFAX Group for its sponsorship of the show for the second consecutive season.
According to Okeowo, who emerged the winner after weeks of grueling business-related tasks, and the Executive Producer of the show, Mr. Mide Kunle-Akinlaja, the sponsorship by SIFAX Group has helped to fulfill the objective of the show which is to encourage Nigerian young people to toe the path of entrepreneurship, rather than waiting for the elusive paid employment. The duo spoke during their appreciation visit to the company’s head office.
Kunle-Akinlaja said: “We are indeed grateful to SIFAX Group for the invaluable support and sponsorship that gave birth to the success of the second season of the show, which aims at encouraging and inspiring young and talented Nigerians with business ideas that can be built into new enterprises that are innovative, exciting and sustainable; and also contribute towards the social development of Nigeria through job creation.”
On his own part, the winner, Davies Okeowo, the immense opportunity that the show provides would be judiciously utilized for the fulfillment of the set out objectives of the show.
“Winning The Next Titan, in which over 10,000 eligible, young Nigerians with diverse business ideas, is a rare privilege. I am not going to take the fact for granted. I won’t have been a winner if the show didn’t hold. The show won’t have held if SIFAX Group didn’t support. So, I am grateful to SIFAX Group for its support to millions of young Nigerians through this show.”
In his remarks, SIFAX Group Executive Director, Dr. Phil Ofulue, commended the initiators of the show and its impact in the area of entrepreneurship. He noted that SIFAX Group has a reputation of supporting worthy causes, particularly ones that positively impact the society. He noted that the current economic state and the prevalent unemployment rate in the country make it more compelling for corporate organizations to support unique projects like The Next Titan.
