Having just received an endorsement from the Lagos State Government, a new TV reality show, Ignite TV is set to transform the lives of young business owners in Nigeria.
An initiative of the After School Graduate Development Centre in partnership with the Lagos State Government, the show involves 300 budding entrepreneurs jostling for the top spot in 26 episodes.
Filmed before a live audience of young entrepreneurs, each episode is packed with fresh business nuggets, heated tutorial/motivational sessions, which often feature guest speakers selected from a pool of accomplished entrepreneurs and business leaders who have surmounted various odds to succeed in their various field of business.
Moderated by Mrs. Ibukun Awosika, the show provides budding entrepreneurs with an interactive forum for skill-development, networking, and mentoring.
“Ignite TV as the name suggests, is a great undertaking for me, I look forward to working with these young, vibrant minds,” Awosika states.
“We already have an impressive record of tackling unemployment and driving small businesses. Now we are partnering with the After School Development Centre on Ignite Enterprise project to provide practical tools to teach young people how to build businesses and crate employment for others,” Lagos state Governor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, was also quoted as saying.
The programme is aired every week on LTV and Channels Television.
