We are excited to announce that our first Demo Day event has been scheduled to hold on January 27, 2017 in the city of Abuja.
The vision behind launching Ventures Platform is to be a space that supports Africa’s brightest tech entrepreneurs by funding them early; connecting them with the best mentors; supporting them as they scale; and providing them suitable work spaces and residence.
Our competitive 16-week intensive hybrid incubation program focuses on training and mentoring startups to scale their businesses.
The first cycle of the program selected seven startups from across the continent, each working on an innovative business idea that not only support economic growth but that also seeks to make a social impact in local communities and across the continent.
This acceleration cycle ends on January 27, 2017 when the startups get to present themselves and pitch their businesses before local and international investors and select members of the public who will attend the Ventures Platform Demo Day.
In the coming days we will be releasing a new video and blog series focused on helping you get to know the startups as we countdown to demo day.
