Wennovation Hub partners Informa To Host NigeriaCom 2015

by | Jun 26, 2015

Wennovation hub recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Informa Telecoms & Media, a provider of events, research and training to the global telecoms and media community, to jointly organize the maiden edition of Entrepreneurs Hub For Startups at the forthcoming NigeriaCom 2015.

NigeriaCom is a conference and exhibition designed to support and serve knowledge and content development for the ICT industry in Nigeria.

Entrepreneurs Hub at NigeriaCom 2015 will grant 5 startups the opportunity to pitch their ideas before a panel of judges to win prizes and an additional 15 startups along with the Top 5 to enroll in a mentorship program facilitated by Informa & Wennovation Hub.

The purpose of the Entrepreneurs’ hub is to bolster support for the start-up community by offering local innovators a chance to network with multinationals and leading private sector players in ICT through panel debates at the conference and crucially through workshops, a mentorship scheme, seed investment styled in a ‘pitch & win’ session and a golden opportunity for 1 startup to showcase their products and services at Africa’s biggest ICT stage.

The East African Edition of the Entrepreneurs Hub For Startups was co-organized by iHub in Nairobi in May 2015. Winners of the regional editions will receive a trip to Cape Town, South Africa to be enrolled at the Entrepreneurs Incubator Hub (A-Hub) at AfricaCom, 17-19 November 2015.
