Edwin like all other students needed a little pocket money and chose to not only start a business but help build other businesses through his passion for technology and acknowledging the impact it plays in todays world seeing that most businesses are transitioning to either partially or fully online companies.
Edwin is an example of a youth that is battling against all odds in an already competitive field to make his impact. He has managed to be named as one of the nominees by Founder Of The Year Awards (FOYA) under Mediapreneur Of The Year Under Age 30 where nominations are still ongoing.
Edwin and the entire JIL Africa and graphics humbly asks for your help in bringing this award home which will not only give us coverage but also give us a bigger platform and enable us to expand our company. The entire process is very simple and doesn’t take a lot of time, to vote him as the mediapreneur of the year, kindly note that voters can vote for free by signing up/logging in. The voter’s account is credited with one free voting credit daily. To vote more than once, a voter needs to buy more voting credits.
