Empowering Nigerians to drive community impact.
How it Works
Eligible nonprofits and social enterprises submit their proposals to create economic opportunity in Nigeria.
Google and our partners will review applications and select 12 finalists.
From the 12 finalists, the public will have three weeks to vote for their favorite idea.
Final Event and Winners Announced
All 12 finalists are invited to pitch their ideas to our panel of Judges at a final event. The Judges will select three Challenge winners from these finalists, and also announce the people’s choice winner.
Each of the four winners will receive a $250,000 grant and training from Google. The remaining 8 finalists will receive a $125,000 grant.
Community Impact: Does the proposed project create economic opportunity in Nigeria? Does it improve the lives of people in our country?
Innovation: Does the project present unexpected solutions to unmet needs?
Reach: Does it have the potential to scale directly or to serve as a model for other communities? Will its scope grow over time?
Feasibility: Is the project plan (or business plan) well thought-out, and the team well-equipped to execute on it?
