Tecno lifts entrepreneurs with logistics
Smartphone manufacturer, Tecno has further enabled the mobile ecosystem with cash and logistics support handed to four entrepreneurs in Nigeria.The Chinese phone maker gave the entrepreneurs N1 million each and a brand new Tecno Spart 2 smartphone to support their dreams.
These supports were the high point of the ‘Light up Your Dream 2018 Competition’, organized by the smartphone manufacturer, in Lagos. The competition received thousands of entries, out of which 20 participants were selected to make a live pitch before fans, judges and others. Four winners eventually emerged top and were adequately rewarded.
Public Relations and Strategic Partnership Manager, Tecno Nigeria, Jesse Oguntimehin, said: “You already know that at Tecno, giving is part of our DNA. Nigeria is filled with a lot of talented people that do not have the opportunity to bring that dream to the fore due to several reasons, which of course, includes finance. So, we are doing our bit by providing the finance to make things easier for them and we are very glad to get these young dreamers closer to their dream.”
Oguntimehin said the search for the millionaires began on June 13th, after the launch of Tecno’s latest smartphone from the Spark stable –Spark 2, a device built to capture impressive bright and clear pictures, gave an opportunity to everyone with a dream to win the sum of N1 million by just creatively showcasing their special talent or life goals.
According to him, interested participants were simply asked to upload a video, image or text of their dream, and demonstrate how they will celebrate if they eventually win the N1 million. After they make the submissions on their social media platforms with the hashtag #LightUpYourDream2018 and tag Tecno Mobile with its different social media handles, they get their friends to like and share to support them.
