YouWIN First Edition

Federal Government Launches YouWiN! 3 for Men and Women Entrepreneurs

Federal Government launches YouWiN! 3 for both men and women entrepreneurs in Nigeria. YouWiN! 3 is the third edition and will feature men and women entrepreneurs in Nigeria between the ages of 18 to 40.

The programme will be launched in August 2013 by the president and first stage applications close by early September. The first edition of YouWIN programme was for both men and women while the second edition of YouWIN was dedicated to women only.

I am one of the pioneer awardees and I also single handedly helped two women including my sister to win the women edition and assisted many women and men who stood for their wife and I will also help and assist many to make it there in this 3rd edition.

If you have any question, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.

You can check out my past posts about YouWIN and explore them.

  1. Utibeabasi, tnx alot for this information. I also want to participate in d next round. I intend starting from the scratch in the agriculture sector. Pls i need your advise.

    1. Hello Tola,
      The delay is due to some logistics. You know YouWIN One supposed to have closed on 31st July, 2013 and anyone that has not received his or her remaining tranches would forfeit it, but we sent letter to YouWIN secretariat to extend it to August and that request was assented to. Besides, YouWIN Two awardees (women edition) have not been paid their first tranche. They wanted to finish with us, pay youwin2 awardees before commencing the youwin 3. Hopefully next week or last week of August, submission of business plans will commence. Nonetheless, you can register your account and wait for the commencement of biz plan submission.

      I will be releasing my ebook on the secrets, proven techniques you can use and win big with YouWIN soon.

    1. Hello Kolawole, the first round has not been opened for now due to logistics reason. This will, however, be open very soon. I was hoping it will open in the last week of August, but from the look of things, it may be open in the first or second week of September. I will keep you posted.

    1. Hello Ibeabuchi, the delay is due to problem with logistics. YouWIN one urged to have ended so that they can concentrate with YouWIn 2 and 3, but right now some youwin one have not been paid even those that have been cleared by both monitors and approved by YouWIN. Alot will happen in the first week and second week of September and I am quite sure youwin 2 awardees would be paid. From the meeting selected youwin 1 awardees had with coordinator, something positive will happen during this period.

  7. Hello Utibe Etim
    I just herd about the YouWIN 3 program today from a friend and i registered and the message i saw on the page is that YouWiN! 3 Business Plan Competition is not currently open. Does it mean that the program has closed or it has not commenced.

    1. Nnanna no, the youwin3 programme has not started yet. The program will soon commence. The delay is due to some logistics and that is being sorted out by the secretariat.
      Meanwhile you can prepare and get set while waiting for the website to open for submission. Take time to do some researches on your idea and prepare a winner business plan. What is your business idea all about? You can inbox me or call me.
