Mitsubishi, Under 40 CEOs launches second season ‘Drive-Your- Ambition’

Under-40 CEOs, a platform with a mission to inspire and millions of would-be young business leaders across Africa, in collaboration with Massilia Motors, sole distributor of Mitsubishi Motors in Nigeria recently launched the second edition of the Mitsubishi-Drive-Your-Ambition show which started last Wednesday, September 14, 2022.

The first phase of this edition will feature six episodes on YouTube in which six members of the Under-40 CEOs network drive experienced leaders across a wide range of industries, obtaining invaluable insights on topics related to reshaping the social, economic, and political landscape for a better tomorrow.

This edition also introduces the “Meet Your Mentor” competition, in which six fortunate winners who are aspiring or experienced business owners can take advantage of a complimentary mentoring session with a member of the Under40 CEOs network and receive a financial contribution from Massilia Motors of N200,000 each.

In response to the second edition of the campaign, Funmi Abiola, head of marketing and communications at Massilia Motors, said: “Nigerian youths are indigenous and creative, and sometimes all they need is a little encouragement in the form of mentoring along with some financial support”.

“We are excited to go further this season, from inspiring them through the stories of established leaders to creating an impact in the lives of the 6 lucky winners by supporting them financially to pursue their ambition”.

Connecting young entrepreneurs to a vast network of business leaders ensure that these young leaders gain the necessary and pragmatic experience and invaluable insights needed to perform in any role. 

According  to Familusi A. Babajide, Executive director, Under40 CEOs, “A continent with the fastest growing population of youths, it is high time that qualified youths are drafted into several leadership positions in presidencies and state governments, parliaments, corporate boardrooms, as well as civil society and faith-based organisations to assist in conceptualising and driving critical development initiatives”.

Since its launch in 2015, the Under-40 CEOs network has continued  to beam searchlight on several inspiring young business leaders aged 40 and under from various African countries, including Nigeria, Ghana, Rwanda, and even South Africa.
