Message From the Founder

As the World Keeps Moving, will Nigeria’s Youth Catch up?

In a country like ours where the present youthful population [millennials] are only fixated on white collar jobs that are virtually non-existent, some are already positioning themselves to be a part of the bigger picture. This people have taken the first baby steps towards laying the right foundation for the dream that will define the world’s development and secure the future.

These people have gone past merely mouthing the “Future of Tomorrow” maxim, which by the way has become hypnotic in effect; slung by politicians, motivational speakers and life coaches alike. These people have decided not to merely swim in life’s current but dictate the tides!

When I learnt that RISE Networks was coming to town, I knew I had to be there. I was inspired by the story of Nnaemeka Ikegwuonu. I have started my small business as a livestock farmer. Thanks RISE Networks for looking out for Nigerian Youths
RNYF 6 (OWERRI SESSION)
Nnamdi Kelechi - Imo State University, Owerri.

My journey to becoming an entrepreneur started in 2009 when I attended the Benin Session of the Annual Rise National Youth Forum where I met with the Founder of Rise Networks.

Having communicated and noticed some outstanding qualities in the young leader, I was inspired by her testimony and decided to focus on my dreams and like they say…. THE REST IS HISTORY.

Nosa Solomon Ehigiamusoe (Edo State) – CEO, Final Lap Events

RNYF is a game changer. In 2010, I had the honour of volunteering for the Akure session. That was a clear beginning of transformation in my life. After my encounter with RNYF, my business grew exponentially, got on several media platforms, got nominated for the Future Awards prize in Agriculture, won the title of Nigeria’s Champion for the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards, and many other significant things. Today, I am proud to be associated with the growth and progress of RISE and will do everything to inspire other young people that I come across.
