our vision is TO Turn startups into stars.


7-Eleven foundation is a non-profit based in Ibadan, Oyo state, in the South-western part of Nigeria. Our vision is to contribute to nation building by empowering youth-led MSMEs across the city with business skills, technical skills, character building and access to finance. We believe strongly that the prosperity of our nation is hinged on the proliferation of vibrant youth-led MSMEs, which will also contribute immensely to job and wealth creation. We focus mainly on young entrepreneurs who have been in business for at least 1 year. We hope to empower them with the requisite knowledge to help them thrive in business, replicate their successes into other people, and employ some others.

Overview of what we do

It is our vision to see startups thrive. We know that in other for these startups to thrive, there is need for the entrepreneur to be armed with the requisite knowledge, business acumen and access to finance. This is where we come in. Our intervention is focused on building the knowledge base of entrepreneurs and empowering them financially in form of grants. This we do through our flagship incubator program, Empowering Young Entrepreneurs (E.Y.E). We are also keen on skill acquisition for those whose businesses are built on hands-on skills.
