Nigerian entrepreneurial reality show The Next Titan has commenced registrations for its upcoming eighth season.
This year’s edition is subtitled ‘The Uncaged,’ and producers are on the lookout for talented young Nigerians who have great and innovative business ideas that can transcend all circumstances, barriers and limitations.
Nigerians aged between 21 and 35 can register here.
After auditions, the top 80 participants will take part in an online boot camp while engaging in different tasks, which will narrow them down to 50 hopefuls who will take part in a physical boot camp. Subsequently, 16 finalists will be selected to prove their entrepreneurial acumen through various businesses challenges on the 10-week show.
The winner will be awarded N15m (US$36,500) for the support of his/her business idea, while the top 1,000 contestants from auditions with good business ideas and with registered businesses will automatically qualify for N3m funding. Unregistered businesses will qualify for N250,000 funding from the Nigeria Investment Youth Fund.
The Next Titan will air on Africa Magic on DSTV channel 154/GOTV channel 25, as well as TVC (DSTV channel 418) and other channels. Debuting in 2013, the show is produced by Lagos-based Bravopoints International and sponsored by Heritage Bank.
