On 16th of May, 2019, Olamide Ogungbemi and her partner, Mercy Akowe emerged the preferred candidates for the Female Founder fellowship program in Lagos.
The Founder Institute offers more opportunities for promising Founders, to launch companies in the Institute’s Idea-stage startup accelerator program.
However; “The Founder Institute is committed to narrowing the gender gap in high tech startups and in order to empower more females to launch technology companies, we have launched the Female Founder Initiative, to create more opportunities for female Founders, through the Institute and enable women to build successful companies”, explains, Chukwuemeka Fred Agbata Jnr., Co-Director, FI Lagos.
Considering that the world needs more creative people with crazy dreams enough to change the world, Olamide and her partner envisioned the idea of helping children grow into their biggest imaginations and out-think solutions to problems. As parents learn the importance of a child’s ability without underestimating the ordinaries, these upcoming adults are the real future leaders.
In addition – Don’t let somebody tell you that your dreams are too big to be achieved. Yes it might take sometime, but it will pay off one day soon. Don’t you dare – stop doing what you do, someone is watching your every move, and when you least expect it, you’ll have that big break.
