Startup Profile: Corpa — access NYSC resources online

by | Jul 18, 2017

Corpa is a platform strictly targeted at Nigerian youth corpers. According to the founder, Emmanuel Akpe, the platform aims to solve the pressing challenges of corps members before, during and after their service year.

Emmanuel Akpe (CEO), together with Prince Anayo (COO) and Joseph Emeka (CTO) launched Corpa on July 1, 2016.

On the platform, corps members can purchase camp kits, get accommodation, book transport options and get extra jobs. Corpa also provides a forum for interaction, news update, and trading of properties used during service year.

Asides these, the platform aims to alleviate the stress of finding deployed locations with its map feature. Hence, corp members get directions and navigate through their newly posted areas easily. “It’s a one stop shop for all corps members needs,” Emmanuel told Techpoint.

Thoughts

Since inception in 1973, the National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) has been an adventure most Nigerian University graduates look forward to. However, it hasn’t been without some peculiar challenges. They range from getting good accommodation to navigating unknown areas and more. Therefore, if Corpa could deliver on its value proposition, many corp members will surely be relieved and probably, have a more interesting adventure.

If you are a corp member, take advantage of the platform immediately.
