In the quest to promote innovation among the Nigerian youths and inculcate in them the spirit of entrepreneurship, Social Good Nigeria initiated Pop-up Incubator 2015 project across six major cities in Nigeria.  This had six finalists emerged with their individual ICT based innovations and projects competed and at last a winner has finally emerged.   Below is the press release announcing their scores and performances:

Dear Friend,

Compliments of the Season from Social Good Nigeria, and happy 2016. We hope the new year brings open doors and new opportunities to you and your organisation.

We wish to register our profound appreciation to you for honouring our invitation to attend the Post Popup Incubator Project Contest Finals held on the 10th of December, 2015. We also thank you for your contributions also which added value to the ideas presented that day, and also went in to help decide the winner of the contest.

The competition was aired on AIT, and published on two blogs:

Now we are happy to announce that the winner has been decided.

For ease of assessment, rankings done by the Jury and from audience participation during the pitching contest have been converted to points. Thus an entry ranked 1st as the best is given 6 points, and a ranking of 6th is given 1 point. Points are accumulated to allow the Jury make the final decision of the overall winner. Participation from the carefully selected audience was a critical part of the process because of the experiences they bring to work.

Below is a summary of the results:

ENTRY AUDIENCE JURY CUMULATIVE POSITION

Finally, We wish to thank our partners, The Enspire Incubator; Vinnova from Sweden; and, especially, The Embassy of Sweden in Nigeria, who are the funders of the project.
