ABOUT Unusual Entrepreneur

The Unusual Entrepreneur

Launched in 2018; The Unusual Entrepreneur (UE) is aimed at providing funding, business training and mentorship for catholic entrepreneurs in Nigeria. The goal is to identify key gaps and opportunities in their businesses and provide them with coaching and support services that will enable them to succeed long term.

The vision of the Unusual entrepreneurs is to be the pre-eminent faith-based entrepreneurship programme in Nigeria that unlocks the obstacles Nigerian entrepreneurs face as they grow their start-ups into small to medium enterprises (SMEs) and their SMEs into national growth companies.

Our programme equips Entrepreneurs with the necessary skills, support, training, mentorship, and funding to build strong and sustainable businesses that are scalable over time.

To achieve this vision, our mission is to identify, accelerate, empower and support 1000 catholic entrepreneurs over the next 5 years.

Last year alone, we empowered 251 beneficiaries at the Lagos event with N40m in seed funding.
