by | Jun 5, 2019

Application is ongoing for indigenous startups to win up to $30,000 seed funding at the third edition of GenesysIGNITE.

This seed fund is to enable rapid scale startups and innovative ideas in the tech industry expand their reach, increase traction and gain more access to markets and resources that would otherwise be out of their reach.

Successful applicants will join an intensive business development bootcamp in July, as a build up to the GenesysIGNITE conference and Demo Day in November where they would pitch to a panel of judges in Enugu.

From there, winners will join an intensive 6-month incubation aimed at scaling their ideas and businesses to self-sustainability.

Additional perks comes in the form of working space, mentorship, support, and access to markets and resources.

In 2017, the first edition of GenesysIGNITE saw three startups win funding of $10,000 each. Last year, 2018 two startups won funding of $15,000 each.

This year’s edition of GenesysIGNITE, which promises to be even better than the previous years, is open to indigenous startups which have left the idea stage.

Intending startups can apply by visiting the GenesysIGNITE website. Application closes on 30th of June 2019.
