How often have you had problems trying to pay for
something via a cashless transaction? How frustrating does it get sometimes? Are we truly cashless or not? When are we going to get it right we have all asked one too many times.
But… What if it was possible for you to help solve the problem? What if it was possible for you to make money (and win some cool gadgets) from making sure that we all don’t pay for any transaction with physical cash, in the nearest future?
Introducing eNNovate Naija!
As a proactive measure to solve some of the challenges posed by the Central Bank of Nigeria’s cashless policy,
Nigeria Inter-Bank Settlement Systems PLC (NIBSS)
conceived the idea of organizing an online crowd sourced contest, known as ‘eNNovate Naija’ aimed at generating innovative ideas to drive the policy, and generate solutions to overcome the present challenges.
The contest will play out mostly online and participants will be required to log on to a website and pitch ideas under this theme: ‘How Do I Make Cashless Policy more effective in my community?’
A cash reward of N350,000 each and some Samsung devices will be given to the top 10 ideas that provide solutions to solve this collective problem of ours.
The 2015 eNNovation Challenge is managed by Digital
Jewels Limited and is organized in partnership with
Samsung and IBM.
