US based NGO, MentoringHer is set to host the maiden edition of its virtual Pitchathon on Saturday, 10th October 2020.
In response to the pandemic’s devastating effects, the NGO will provide Five million Naira in seed funding to five women as well as one on one mentoring to others.
“When you hear what some people can do with 1 million naira, you will be surprised. Nigerian women deserve to be prioritised, the pandemic has shown that everyone needs a source of income and women are not excluded” said Dr. Lola Adeyemi, the founder.
In her words, the pandemic spurred her to create this opportunity for Nigerian women to start as well as grow existing businesses.
With established panelists from different walks of life, the program is set to better the chances of women across Nigeria.
