In 30-days, the activity got hundreds of entries across different social media channels – Instagram, Twitter and Facebook out of which 10 lucky entrepreneurs were shortlisted to pitch their businesses to a panel of shrewd business experts and investors. After speaking with the “Sharks”, Abiola Adesina, a growing fish farmer and Bolatito Bashiru, a talented fashion designer left the tank with the sum of N1million each.
