Commenting on their win, Similoluwa said: “I cannot particularly point out something as making us win. We received God’s favour that’s for sure and we also had help from a lot of people who we ran out project by and they helped us look at things even better than we were doing.”

“We weren’t just focused on Hultprize we were determined to take the business to the next level with or without Hultprize so we gave ourselves totally to the project and we also opened our work to criticism which helped us see things through the eyes of others and make improvements, she added”
