Out of 668 applications for the second stream, 30 entrepreneurs were shortlisted to attend the Orange Corners Nigeria Bootcamp after which Afrilearn co-founder, Isaac Oladipupo emerged as one of the top 20 entrepreneurs finalists for the Orange Corners Nigeria Business Incubation, following his outstanding pitch.

His post reads: “Since my great friend @olatunjilegend and I started building @afrilearn over a year ago, it’s been a very interesting and challenging experience working to solve arguably the greatest challenge of our continent – #QualiityEducation. But as big as the challenge is, so are the opportunities that lie therein. For this reason, I’m delighted, not only to have been selected one of the top 30 entrepreneurs, but also to have emerged one of the 20 finalists for @orangecornersng Incubation Programme [Stream II] initiated by Kingdom of the Netherlands @minbz in partnership with @FateFoundation. Congrats to other amazing entrepreneurs who made it. Looking forward to unlearn and relearn as we build Africa’s future.
