Victor Edozien of Real Life 101 Scholarship Fund Review

A scholarship granted by a particular organization will greatly benefit an individual who’s having a financial problem. It’ll serve as a key in opening the door of one’s successful future. Since the year 2000, Real Life 101 Scholarship Fund has granted over 500 scholarships to inner city African American males.

 

One of the committed board members of Real Life 101 is Victor Edozien. He’s been one of the strong foundations of the good reputation of a well-known holding company in the US called Asaba Group Holdings. It’s a good thing a man in his caliber is a part of the organization.

 

Victor Edozien is the founder and managing principal of Asaba Group Holdings. Due to his indomitable dedication to the company, he also became the CEO and president of one of its portfolio companies known as SET Enterprises, Inc. Reviews show that he’s also a veteran of the United States Army.

 

It also appears that Victor has an incomparable commitment to his work and more reviews about him indicate that perhaps this is the reason why he turns out to be very successful in his career. He remains strong and determined to his goals and dreams despite of many difficulties that come in his way.

 

Recent reviews also claim that for more than a decade, Victor has been in the automotive business and operates other automotive businesses under AG Manufacturing, Inc., which has different locations in the US, such as Alabama, Illinois, and Michigan. He has over 15 years of expertise in strategic planning, revenue growth strategy, acquisition strategies, and business improvement and turnarounds.

 

Victor is a member of the CEO Connection, Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO), and Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO). He’s currently a Wharton Fellow at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

 

Furthermore, reviews highlight Victor’s achievement in his educational career. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, Bachelor of Arts in Geology with Mathematics, Master of Science in Engineering, and Master of Business Administration in Finance and Operations Management.

 

On the other hand, Real Life 101 Scholarship Fund is a 501(c)(3) organization that provides college scholarships for selected inner city African American males who are graduating from high school. As mentioned earlier, the organization has awarded hundreds of scholarships and provides over 1,500 laptop computers to inner city African American males.

 

The organization has the mission of supporting inner city students who have financial obstacles that prevent them from attending college and expose them to falling prey to the negative statistics that haunt African American males in the United States.

 

Each of the scholarship students receives a certified Real Life Mentor for up to five years while in the Real Life program, a computer backpack, a laptop computer equipped with software, an annual scholarship of $1,000 for up to five years, and the opportunity to obtain a degree of his choice.

 

An eligible student of Real Life 101 must be accepted into a college/university, trade school, or an accredited higher education institution. They also have the freedom to decide where to take their degree of choice anywhere in the world. The organization is funded by private donors and corporations.

 

It would be the high school teachers and counselors who’ll choose the students who will be considered for the scholarships. A student must have quality content on the required 1,000-word essay in order to receive the scholarship. He or she must write and submit it to Real Life 101 and complete the online application. The topic of the essay is: “What will you personally do to improve the current negative statistics regarding African American males in America and abroad.”

 

Expect that Victor Edozien and Real Life 101 Scholarship Fund will continue to support and provide guidance to these future leaders of tomorrow through their collective commitment and resolve.

Asaba Group Holdings on Victor Edozien - The Prince of Steel

Nigeria-American businessman, Victor Edozien, has quietly built a $400m portfolio in the American automotive manufacturing industry. He towers elegantly as Nigeria’s image builder in the global community.
     
MANUFACTURING plants across the United States of America have faced steady close-downs as businessmen move their operations to Asia and Latin America to reduce cost and optimize profits. This has led to high unemployment and dislocation, leaving industrial centres such Detroit in ruins. If the situation is to be resolved however, it will be due to brave souls such as Nigerian American investor and business personality, Mr. Victor Edozien, whose string of plants are keeping thousands of people in jobs and last year returned a healthy $400million turnover. Edozien’s Asaba Holdings operates manufacturing, consulting and lifestyle businesses and has operations in five states in the US. Its portfolio companies include the AG Manufacturing Inc, which is an Electrical and electronics sub-assembly manufacturer for the automotive, marine and military defense industries; the SET Enterprises, which is a major provider of steel processing services to the automotive industry and the Asaba Group which offers strategy consultancy to the automotive industry and the US Air Force. The companies operate manufacturing plants in Michigan, Illinois, Alabama and Indiana. ‘We have a portfolio turnover of $400m last year and our goal is to reach $1billion by the end of the decade,’ Edozien told The Guardian at his office located on the 66th floor of the iconic Empire State building in New York. ‘The basics are there. We have over 700 highly motivated employees and our businesses are well run.’
 
It is hard not be infected by Edozien’s optimism about the ability of his businesses to continue its dizzying growth, after all the total portfolio turnover of the operation was a mere $1.2million in 2004. So, how has this man, who grew up in Nigeria been able to leverage his talents to build a successful business in the United States?
 
Edozien said: ‘What I do is seek competitive white space to invest in. I usually use my own money to do business, so I have independence in decision-making. But I also have a strong management team to run the various operations. I rely on them a lot. I just provide guidance and strategic visioning. The crucial question for us is always, is there opportunity for us to move in? Once this is clear, I take the decision to invest or not.’
