Due to current coronavirus realities, ARM, in partnership with TechnoVision (TVC), has announced that the 2022 edition of the Deji Alli ARM Young Talent Award (DAAYTA) finalists pitch event will be held virtually on April 8th, 2022.

To this end, ARM has launched a call for applications for DAAYTA 2022, in which it is looking for Nigeria’s best and most innovative start-up business ideas to participate in this edition.

The Deji Alli ARM Young Talent Award (DAAYTA) is a youth awards program founded by ARM in 2015 to honor the company’s founding CEO, Deji Alli.

The award’s goal is to help young entrepreneurs who have brilliant, innovative ideas that have a positive impact on people’s lives and the communities in which they reside.

The aim of DAAYTA 2022 is to find start-ups that have a minimum viable product (MVP) and at least one customer.

The DAAYTA 2022 winner will receive funding of 12,000,000 (twelve million naira) over a one-year period to develop their business plan, complete an entrepreneurial education at Pan Atlantic University’s Enterprise Development Centre in Lagos, Nigeria, and finance a 5-month acceleration support to develop their venture via a reputable entrepreneurial hub also in Lagos.

TechnoVision Communications LLC coordinates the DAAYTA Award, which is now in its fourth edition after a successful pilot edition in 2015.

Entrepreneurs who are interested can apply here.
