Betty Irabor, Eku Edewor, Denrele Sonariwo and others at the Cointreau Creative Crew finale event

In April 2016, Cointreau launched the Cointreau Creative Crew- a philanthropic programme which promotes creative freedom. Later on in the year, applications for the grant opened and 10 finalists were selected.

The finale event of the Cointreau Creative Crew programme was held Last week Sunday.

Finalists were all given the opportunity pitch their business plan to the judges which included; Betty Irabor (Creative curator of the Cointreau creative crew and founder of Genevieve magazine), Barbara Lawrence (CEO of Insolitus Nigeria Ltd., Leadership through personal accountability), Bidemi Zakariyau (Founder LSF|PR) and Xavier Carbonel (Country Manager for Remy Cointreau). Also in attendance were the committee members, Eku Edewor, Denrele Sonariwo and Afua Osei.

Having impressed the jury with a solid and well-presented business plan Nsaata Africa emerged the winner of the €20,000 Cointreau Creative Crew grant.

The Cointreau Creative Crew remains committed to help inspire, encourage and support young men and women advance in their chosen career fields through their willingness to create and explore new avenues of self-expression.
