Apply for GTBank 1 Million Social Impact Challenge

GTBank – Following more than two decades of consistent investment in community development, Guaranty Trust Bank plc is taking its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) another step further by launching a Social Impact Challenge that will fund dozens of innovative ideas designed and executed by members of the general public.

Tagged #SimpleChangeBigImpact, the Social Impact Challenge invites individuals and groups to pitch ideas with the potential to enrich the lives of those in their community and receive funding from the Bank to execute the change.

This is the latest in a long line of CSR initiatives by GTBank, designed to foster socio-economic development across the country. The Bank’s Adopt-a-School initiative and Football Education Programmes have helped thousands of young students excel in and outside the classroom, while its Autism advocacy has remarkably raised the social consciousness and societal support for people living with Autism and other developmental disabilities.

Now, with the Social Impact Challenge, the Bank hopes to invest directly in the social infrastructure of at least 20 communities nationwide.

To participate in the Social Impact Challenge, the interested person(s) are to pitch their idea in a one-minute video which they will share using the hashtag #SimpleIdeasBigImpact. The video pitch should contain the potential of the idea, how it will be executed and the budget required to get it done.

The ideas must be executable within 120 hours and will be chosen by a combination of public endorsements on social media and expert assessments by the Bank. The expert assessment will focus on the creativity, relevance, unique impact of the idea as well as the feasibility of executing the idea within the stipulated timeframe.

Commenting on the Bank’s Social Impact Challenge, the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of GTBank, Mr Segun Agbaje, said; “We are excited to organize an initiative that will showcase not just the ingenuity and creativity of Nigerians, but also their passion for making a positive social impact in their communities.

This Social Impact Challenge reflects the premium we put on innovation and collaboration and demonstrates our commitment to giving back to society.

He further stated that “As we continue to transform our institution into a platform for enriching lives, we are fully integrating Corporate Social Responsibility into our business model such that our CSR initiatives now form a core part of the normal way we go about our business. This is driven by our strong belief that building a strong business and making the world a better place are essential ingredients for long-term success.

GTBank is regarded by industry watchers as one of the best run African financial institutions across its subsidiary countries and serves as a role model within the financial service industry due to its bias for world-class corporate governance standards, excellent service quality and innovation.

The Bank’s footprints in Corporate Social Responsibility are guided strategically by its decision to operate on four major pillars: Education, Community Development, Arts and the Environment, which it believes are essential building blocks for the society and prerequisites for economic growth and societal development.

Google Online Marketing Challenge 2015

The Google Online Marketing Challenge is a unique opportunity for students to experience and create online marketing campaigns using Google AdWords and Google+. With a $250 AdWords advertising budget provided by Google, students develop and run an online advertising campaign for a business or non-profit organization over a three week period. The teams that develop and communicate the most successful campaigns win awesome prizes, including trips to Google offices. It is a competition open to student teams of three to six members from undergraduate or graduate programs, regardless of their major.

Interestingly, Nigerian Universities have been participating in this competition which shows that the technology rave hitting Nigeria is been channelled into positive energy. The Google Online Marketing Lab (OML) held for the first time in Nigeria in 2013 were students who performed well in the previous year’s GOMC were invited for the 3-day workshop and taught about Digital Marketing after which they were sent to their various universities to evangelize, teach, and prepare other students for the Google Online Marketing Challenge.

I have seen the interest of students in various campuses grow tremendously which saddens my heart that down here that some Campus where this competition can be used as a massive tool for students involved in marketing and business related courses to have a hands-on experience and added knowledge of how digital marketing is shaping the future of marketing in the world today, we have refused to leverage the growing community (Co-creation Hub, Idea Hub, etc.) of start-ups to our advantage.

Ladoke Akintola University of Technology in Nigeria even though are not located in a region surrounded by great start-ups like the University of Lagos have however shown that local businesses in Nigeria would thrive and benefit from digital marketing. Last year they were Regional winners for the “AdWords Business – Middle East & Africa Region” where a team worked with Automedics Limited, an automobile maintenance workshop offering free advisory car care tips. This year, they also emerged the Regional Winners for the “Google+ Social Media Marketing Awards – Middle East & Africa Region” having a team that worked with an online radio platform  Jandus Radio, a company with a mobile application that allows you to listen to Nigerian radio and other African radio stations on your mobile phone anywhere in the world.

This opportunity would cost us nothing rather it would add to our skillset and  give us a hands-on experience on how small and medium business reach the customers that they need. It is obvious that Nigeria Campus Youth are industrious students and some of us are involved in one or two businesses. It is time to use digital marketing to let the world know you exist!

2016 registration would be out soon. Prepare yourself to launch out!

Full result list showing participants proficiency can be found on the Google Online Marketing Challenge website.
