What Our Students Say

  • "StudentBuild opened me up to a career-changing opportunity. In contrast to what is obtainable in the current job climate in Nigeria, the job found me and not the other way around. Being part of this network automatically puts you two steps ahead of your contemporaries. Why haven't you joined?!"

    Murewa Ademola-Idowu - Now a Business Partner Executive at Scalein
  • "It’s been all I expected — and more! It’s been an immersive experience with loads of learning and opportunities. The incubator has given me the chance to get hands-on with some of the things I know.
    The conversations with the mentors and guest lecturers are just top-notch. I would say joining the incubator is one of the best decisions I made during my final years in college."

    Ayobami Marcus - Now a Sales Analyst at Procter & Gamble
  • "When I got the link to join StudentBuild from a friend of mine, I filled it with the idea that I’ll get to meet new friends from different schools. Of course, I made friends along the way but asides from that, I was opened to a world of young brilliant minds. I was amazed that people my age had done and were doing great things already and just being in that environment stirred up something in me and I knew I could do great things, and today, I’m glad to say I inspire many and I’m really grateful to SB for so much growth I attained in one year."
