Boosting the local tech ecosystem in Kwara

This program aims to spur the growth of new tech startups in Kwara State with the support of the state government. Ten startups will be selected each cohort to learn how to scale their companies with intensive training and mentoring from tech entrepreneurs that have treaded the same path and succeeded. They will also have access to valuable resources (software, discounts etc) from our partners to help them grow faster.
The program is a hybrid between an incubator and accelerator program, to accommodate for the different levels of growth that exists with tech startups in Kwara. The areas of focus are Fintech, Agriculture, Education, Transportation, Government, Business process, E-Commerce & Logistics, Artificial Intelligence, Energy and Blockchain.


We train startup teams how to launch and scale their companies as well as how to raise funds and handle legal matters.



We have a team of mentors who are successful entrepreneurs, investors, startup and other experts in various fields of tech to guide our startup teams.



We have a pool of resources from partners in software, cloud hosting, advertising and discounts to help our founders scale their products faster.



We invest some money in selected startups in exchange for minimal equity to cover startup team costs during the program.
