#DPweek2018: An Address By Rtn. Ifeanyi Aniagoh At The Inauguration Of Digital Entrepreneur Week

I stand here today to welcome this distinguished gathering to the Digipreneur Week 2018, a major event in our Digipreneur Campaign.

For the records, Digipreneur means Digital Entrepreneur. Our Digipreneur Campaign is aimed at bridging the link between the people and wealth creating opportunities in the cyberspace while providing networking opportunities for digital entrepreneurship solutions.

Through this campaign, we reach out to the people and creatively teach them what and how to rightly use the digital space irrespective of location and level in the society; focusing on Self Development, Value Reorientation and Digital Skills Training.

Our Ideas are practical oriented and trainings offered at zero cost to the participants using the three unique Channels, vis a viz:

a. The platform... An online training Institute;

 b. Seminar Series, Workshops and Exhibition;

c. Digipreneurs Club which already has 21 Chapters spread across the 21 local government areas of Anambra State waiting to be inaugurated.

How did we get here?

Upon my appointment as a Social Media aide to the youth friendly Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, I was exposed to the unttapped wealth creating opportunities lying fallow in the cyberspace in a time that our society is facing serious unemployment crisis and rising insecurity.

First, I was inspired to encourage other youths to embrace possitive Social Media.

So, my team and I started the Social Media Hangout, providing the platform for social dwellers to integrate and share ideas and experience.

But the fact that opportunities online can be grabbed by anyone; working class, fresh graduates, undergraduates or even school certificate holders inspired us to do more.

We got convinced that if we could get internet users to use it aright, and get as much citizens as possible to key into the endless opportunities in Digital Entrepreneurship space, enough wealth will be created to improve the lives of the people, creating a lot of jobs and taking a lot of young people off the streets.

So, we began to make case for Digital Entrepreneurship and like a miracle waiting to happen, Gov Willie Obiano made history by appointing Engr Ifeanyi ANIAGOH as Senior Special Assistant on Youth Development and Digital Entrepreneurship. First in history of our dear nation

Upon resumption of office, my team and I, under the guidance of Nigeria's youngest Commissioner for Youth Empowerment and Creative Economy, Hon Bonaventure Enemali, designed the Digipreneur Campaign and moved into action making a huge mark in less than 3 months.

What do we aim to achieve?

1. Eradicate unemployment by creating job opportunities
2. Eradicate insecurity by taking youths off the streets
3. End hunger by creating wealth
4. Stop Internet Fraud
5. Erase Youth Delinquency through Self Development and Value Reorientation

How can we achieve the above?

Continuous exposure of the people through awareness campaigns

1. Hosting of free Digipreneur Seminars and Exhibitions
2. Expanding the Digipreneur Club to every town, all schools and beyond.
3. Partnering with institutions and necessary organisations to establish a good curriculum for Digital Entrepreneurship
 4. Make the platform the number one portal for Digital Entrepreneurship training in Africa.

Why Digipreneur Week

As part of our Digipreneur Evangelism, we setup this annual event "Digipreneur Week" featuring Exhibition, Summit, Networking, Hangout:

To motivate, mentor and provide platform for Anambra Youths to network and take advantage of the growing impact of ICT;

To empower Anambra Youths for greater contribution to State Economy;

To introduce participants to different digital entrepreneurship opportunities;

To promote internet-based enterprises and entrepreneurship;

To provide mentorship/sponsorships to select Startups

The participants will have access to: 6 months Business Advisory and Support; Online Media/PR Clinic; Internship/Mentorship Opportunities; and Face-to-Face Interaction with Small Business Financing Institutions.

Also, we introduced a Mini Exhibition to motivate an exchange of ideas between the attendees and the exhibitors; and primarily to show the world that Anambra State has the potential of being a big hub for Digipreneurs.

And here we are together, to officially open the first ever Digital Entrepreneurship Week in Nigeria.

With heart filled with gratitude and on behalf of my team and the Digipreneur Think Tank, I thank, in a special way, the Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano whose approval and vision for creatively active youth made this event possible.
