The Immersion Project 2018
A fellowship that matches young undiscovered talents looking to get into the tech sector with the opportunity to learn directly from CEOs/MDs of tech companies while working on revenue-focused projects in their companies.
Africa (to streamline, Nigeria) needs to build good businesses that will service its economy and also increase the value created in the region.
The investment space is increasing year on year but human resources are not scaling at the same pace. TIP is working with executives in the tech space to take on young talents and train them.
TIP has three main objectives
- Create a professional network: Fellows can build a relationship with mates of like minds and founders of partner companies. This is a good jump start for their in the tech space.
- Professional Growth: Fellows get to learn from founders/MDs that they won’t have had access to for a period of 6 months. This is to augment what they have learnt from the books.
- Exposure to Real Business: Fellows will work on real projects that will actually contribute to the growth of the company. They will have a taste of running a company inside a company and this will build their mental muscle.
