Grooming Film Extrapreneurs (with Kunle Afolayan): a Sahara Group initiative invites entries for a scholarship aimed at grooming film entrepreneurs. It seeks to promote a hub of enterprise that connects budding filmmakers with stakeholders that can help hone their skills to enhance productivity, excellence and sustainability in their careers.
Project Details
The extrapreneurship framework is a concept adopted by the Sahara Foundation, whose raison d’etre is directed at youth empowerment and poverty alleviation through the principles of entrepreneurship. Our chosen approach at Sahara will involve leveraging internal and external strengths to drive cross-sectoral collaboration by connecting the right people and organizations towards providing sustainable solutions to global social problems while creating wealth in the process. This will require developing projects, programmes and initiatives that add value to the beneficiaries whilst making them self- reliant. Unlike entrepreneurship which focuses mainly in income generation, extraprenuership is centered on wealth creation and preservation.
