iDEA Nigeria is accepting applications to both its incubator and accelerator programmes.
The incubation programme supports early stage tech entrepreneurs for up to one year with infrastructure, mentorship, business advisory and professional services in order to help validate the market and build the right product. Among startups already in the iDEA Incubation programme are healthcare startup APMIS and Talkingbookz, both of which have been featured on Techpoint.
Budding tech entrepreneurs with great ideas can be part of the programme too by applying here before the 18th of December. You can find out more information on the website
On the other hand, the iDEA Acceleration Program is a 14-week sprint consisting of 3 modules; Design, Build, Pitch, which gets startups to launch, grow market share, and raise funding. The program consists of 14 mentor-led sessions, one of which holds every week.
The simple objective of the iDEA program is to let startups focus on running their business better, while providing them with the necessary resources to help them scale faster. iDEA Nigeria takes a 6% stake in startups accepted into the Accelerator Programme, in exchange for the benefits of the program and $10,000.
The iDEA Nigeria Accelerator Programme culminates in a Demo Day event, where successful startups get to pitch their solution to investors.
