If you attended the POPUP Incubator organized by the SocialGoodNG team in August this year, then you will find this post very useful.
They are organizing a post POPUP contest with support from their partners to “tell the stories” of impressive and potentially profitable ideas and efforts emanating from Nigeria to give a platform for exposure to such.
According to the contest website, a single winner would be adjudged and selected for a weeklong excursion to Sweden, sponsored by Partners to observe some select Swedish businesses and tour their operational location for some real time learning aimed at helping strengthen the winner’s views and proposed strategy and create a networking link as well.
- Originality: The uniqueness of the idea and its superiority in comparison with similar or alternative ideas in the market.
- Social impact: The ability of the idea to create or effect positive or desirable changes within the target community and beyond; ie Job creation, positive environmental impact.
- Sustainability: This refers to the extent to which the idea can endure and keep itself alive.
- Scalability: The extent to which the solution can be easily applied to other similar markets beyond the applicant’s immediate or local environment.
- Marketability: The extent to which the innovation sufficiently addresses the problem it seeks to solve at a price or model that is accessible to the target market.
