Startup Nigeria is an intervention of the National Social Investment Program (NSIP) under the Office of the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as part of the program to support private sector innovation hubs for the strategic increase of entrepreneurial and technological capacity across Nigeria.
It is a 3-month incubation program designed to help Nigerians with great innovative ideas – create viable products, go to a market and gain traction.
The program will provide training, mentorship and equity free funding to selected startups, with a specially curated curriculum designed specifically to help idea and early-stage entrepreneurs find their footing and grow in Nigeria’s socio-economic terrain. Startup Nigeria gives founders the needed leverage to excel.
Other startups that don’t get accepted into the incubation program will also be able to access support in a business model generation, customer acquisition and other business engineering skills – from Startup Nigeria representatives located in every state in the North Central and South Eastern zones of the country.
If you are still at the idea stage of your product, you can apply here to participate in the Startup Nigeria Hackathon from which you get a chance to qualify for incubation.
If you have a startup with an MVP(Minimum Viable Product) that falls into the listed sectors apply here for incubation.
