What Chidi and the team are doing with the Savvy Fellowship Program is heartwarming. For someone like me, who is well-versed in operations and some dealings of the start-up world and businesses in general (global and national), I would say, the classes were very much informative and opened my eyes more on how to apply certain things. I learned a lot really.

Savvy is a well-designed program for those wanting to pursue entrepreneurship in the future. It provides insights into the basic knowledge one must have to engage in entrepreneurial activities. The notes provided are brief yet give maximum knowledge and this does not even bore the learner. This is a very good platform for people to learn about entrepreneurship in their early stages.

If you want to be an entrepreneur, then you need to go through the Savvy program. The curriculum is well-defined and very informative. You can work base on your availability because the lessons are split into weeks, and then you can get the opportunity to evaluate yourself by taking the assessment. I definitely recommend it to everyone who got an interest in entrepreneurship.

The online learning platform is very easy to navigate and to find all resources. The lessons are practical, and the follow-up assessment tests helped me understand and remember the lessons. My Savvy mentor also introduced me to growth hacking and it’s one of the best things that happened to my startup. All my expectations were truly met. Savvy is exceptional. Proud to be a Savvy Fellow!

Savvy is a great place to be if you’re starting your entrepreneurial journey. The lessons are clear and apt, and the audio makes it even more beautiful. However, it’s not only for aspiring entrepreneurs but also for early-stage entrepreneurs, because it is a masterclass. Each lesson has an assessment, which makes learning practical and evaluated.

Well done and thank you for the opportunity to be a part of this. The program is a good one and very helpful. I like the fact that it was split into weeks and not a one-phased one. I also like the fact a telegram community was created also to meet, share, and network. I learnt a lot in the course of the program.
Thank you very much.

Getting into Savvy was exciting for me. It was an avenue to learn practical ideas that promote business ideation and growth. The learning materials (videos, transcripts, and slides) were apt and straight to the point. There was continuity between the content for each successive week, making it easy to follow through. The program approach is genius. I’m glad to have been part of it.
—Mascot Obasi (from Nigeria)
The program opened a lot of hidden knowledge about entrepreneurship to me. I had to get a beautiful brand new notebook for it. It’s something one needs to read and reread once in a while and I believe anyone who followed the program duly and with perfect understanding will thrive in the world of business and entrepreneurship. Haven’t had anything like this for free. It’s value-packed.
—Maryjane Ugwuanyi (from Nigeria)
It was so amazing. It talks about real-life values and includes various issues and how they need to be addressed appropriately. This program has turned out to be so outstanding and brilliant. In fact, I’d recommend it to others to learn good applications of various problems as entrepreneurs. As a student, it has given me quite a broader view.
—Billy Gareth (from Kenya)
I found Savvy to be a memorable learning opportunity. It is well-designed and delivered in a way that is easy to understand for aspiring and early-stage entrepreneurs. The content is helpful in developing an understanding of the basic concepts, and everyone can benefit immensely from it irrespective of their academic or professional background. It is a wholesome learning experience.
—Mashal Riaz (from Pakistan)
Before starting the fellowship, I ran a nonprofit organization, though I’ve always had the thought to build a startup product but don’t know how to. Today, I have built the MVP of my product ikarely.com, a health tech startup that allows people to get access to well-vetted licensed health professionals to deliver quality healthcare service to them at their homes, by just a request away.
—Tolani Odukoya (from Nigeria)
I am writing this to express my gratitude for the amazing journey I spent as a Savvy Fellow. And through which I have come to learn so much in so little time. The content is so enriching and enlightening. I wish to continue to learn more in this path until I achieve my goals and contribute to the development of my community and country.
—Nesrine Haddou (from Algeria)
The Savvy program has been an educating one for me so far. I really enjoyed every bit of each lesson coupled with the assessment tests to ensure that I know what I’m learning. I can boldly say that I learned and that my knowledge has been improved in things I do not know as a young entrepreneur before. Thank you so much for this opportunity and I do not take it for granted.
—BLESSING ITOHAN AKHIBI (from Nigeria)
Savvy is an excellent Fellowship program. It explained and approached the subject from different angles, so you get a view from business, management, and social innovation. Such Fellowship corresponds theories I feel will bring so much exposure. A very precise, straight to the point, and much more in-depth digging into business and digital marketing.
—Abdisalam Yusuf Ali (from Somalia)
The Savvy Fellowship was a huge success and progress for me, and I hope it was the same for other Fellows. With the training I received and the assessment I completed successfully, I can now write a bankable business plan, pitch my business to venture capitalists, keep accurate records of my business transactions, and more. I want to say a big thank you to the entire Savvy team.
—JUMBO UCHE DANIEL (from Nigeria)
The learning experience in the Savvy program was so great. The weekly learning modules are very much simplified for easy understanding, which is why I consider this fellowship program to be one of my best learning experiences as an entrepreneur. The assessments captured the most important part of the lectures. Thank you to the Savvy team.
