What People Say
Read what our valued beneficiaries and partners have to say about us.
The Igniting Dreams Program is an amazing initiative. Aside from giving participants the opportunity to learn and be mentored by expert professionals from diverse industries, it also gives young entrepreneurs a platform to pitch their business ideas and win seed funding to grow and scale their businesses. I have learnt a lot from this great program, and won the silver prize at the maiden Igniting Dreams Prize. This has helped me to acquire some business development skills and scale and diversify my business.
I was very fortunate to be a part of the 2021 Edition of Igniting dreams summit. This event was one of the life changing opportunities I had at the beginning of the year. I had the chance to meet like-minded colleagues with whom I shared ideas. Igniting Dreams also granted me the opportunity to connect with experts of various industries. This opened the gates for me to receive proper mentorship from industry players, based on which I have launched my own business.
Igniting Dreams aided me to discover myself and unleash my full potential. After attending the first edition of the program, I went ahead to establish my own enterprise and later organized the Upper West Students Excellence Awards. I have since attended all of the four editions of the program. This program is very impactful and a must-attend.
The Igniting Dreams Program helped develop my self-confidence level and public speaking skills. The prize money also helped me register my business and purchase additional training equipment to reach out to more trainees and increase my revenues. It has also further exposed me to many business opportunities and believe me, my business has never been the same ever since my first encounter with CPI and the igniting dreams program.
