Celebrating Enye Cohort 2.0 Graduands

We’ve come such a long way!

And in so short a time! We founded Enye in January 2017 empower motivated students with programming skills to build solutions towards societal problems. Just two cohorts and two years later, we’ve trained, mentored (and turbo-charge the careers of) innovative, socially conscious software engineers.

We started taking students for our first cohort in September 2017. By the end of Cohort 1.0, from a pool of 10 accepted students, three students completed their programs and got internships. With Cohort 2.0, that number doubled and culminated in a super successful meet-up/dinner at SABOR, Victoria Island, Lagos, on July 12, 2019. Six students completed the program during which they developed bold ideas and started working on socially beneficial digital platforms. They have now all gotten internships at reputable organizations abroad.

Enye Cohort 2.0 students worked on a diverse range of ideas, from providing gamified educational platforms to help secondary school students prepare better for their certificate exams, to using digital tech to drive mental health awareness and connect people who need support with experts in the field. They all worked, interacted with each other, made their presentations remotely, and delivered with commendable consistency and growth.

Over eight weeks, Enye students were trained and mentored in programs that involved expert training, personal training, teamwork, idea sharing, and conditioning programs. By the end of the cohort, the graduates attest that they have been equipped with the requisite knowledge, networking power, technical and social know-how to successfully navigate their programming journeys. And now we’re proud to announce the graduands of Enye cohort 2.0:

We appreciate the time, energy, and devotion that our students put into our program, and we are encouraged by their results so far. Community, solidarity, and empowerment remain our core values, and we’ll continue to help our students during their future startup SaaS development processes.
