Breaking: Greenspring Students Develop App To Tackle Kidnapping!!! by zedegit: 6:01am On Aug 20, 2021
Two students of Greensprings School, Lagos, Chioma Abone and Emmanuela Ilok, have developed the idea of products that use wearable technology to address the increasing abduction of school children in Nigeria.
The students, while presenting their idea at this year’s Young Tycoon Business Competition, said the plan is to have a security company that will develop two products that keep school students safe by alerting family and friends when they are in a state of emergency.

The duo emerged one of the 28 finalists out of the 7,000 participants from 80 countries that entered for the competition.

Winner of the competition is expected to win $960,000 worth of prizes.



Explaining their business idea, the students said: “The inspiration for our business idea came from insecurity in the country. As students, we are not happy with the news of the constant abduction of fellow students in some parts of Nigeria.

“So, we decided to work on an idea about a company called Paramount Guard, which seeks to offer security services to school students, not only in Nigeria but all over the world. The company plans to introduce AirGuard Wearable, which pairs with the AirGuard App to help students quickly alert family members and friends when in critical situation or a state of emergency.”

Secondary school principal at Greensprings, Anthony campus, Mrs Magdalene Okrikri, expressed happiness at the students’ advancement to the finals, saying with the total number of participants, their emergence as finalists was a great feat.

She said: “This achievement is a testament to Greensprings School’s drive to raise young entrepreneurs. We are indeed very proud of them and I wish them success in the final.”

The Young Tycoon Business Competition is organised by a consortium of the world’s top universities and Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, with the aim of motivating and mentoring aspiring high-school entrepreneurs across the globe.

The competition started in May, and finalists have gone through three rounds, where they submitted their business ideas, developed business plans and defended their pitch decks. The fourth and final round will take place at a later date yet to be announced.

This can't work in Nigeria because our securities personnel are not ready to fight insecurities. Let's develop application to identify corrupt security officer before kidnapping. Without solving the corruption problem in Nigeria, nothing will work.

Nigeria keeps killing dreams!
The youth only seem to shine brightest in foreign lands and under foreign tutorship,
You can't want a career in robotics, AI, or a thousand other modern career and stay in Nigeria, you might as well shelve your dream while the old and tired men tell you to go back to the farm!

More attention was paid to "repentant" terrorists than youths that represented the shithole at the Olympics

Hopefully enough people realize they are victims of Nigeria!

This is like you saying Nigerian sports program is working because Nigeria was represented in the Olympics, I already stated it that Nigerian youths only shines when there is foreign hands involved,
Can you beat your chest that the idea of tracking kidnappers in Nigeria will get the attention of the government, even though it's badly needed?
How can you look at all the dilapidated schools in Nigeria and claim things are not that bad?
A part of the country is currently closing down schools, the budget for education is laughable, doctors are escaping, engineers, and professionals in general but I am the one living in denial?

You should visit the point of exit of a Nigerian airport and you would understand that in a few years, only touts and people living in denial would remain in Nigeria
