It was the last day of ReadySetWork 2.0 and the atmosphere was so charged, students as well as the selfless RSW faculty were obviously excited to wrap up the 13 week cycle. No doubt it was a day of mixed feelings – the joy of ending the rigorous weekly routine mixed with the reality of missing new friendships made during the programme. ReadySetWork 2.0 has not only been educative, it has also been a journey of self discovery for both students and facilitators as well. Many of the students say they have discovered skills and potentials they didn’t know they possessed.
However, the energy in the Main auditorium of Lagos State University, Ojo was not just the excitement of the end of RSW 2.0, it was the grand finale of the RSW Business Pitch Competition. 23 teams were fired up to pitch their business ideas to the panel of investors.
