Strengthening Edo State’s Digital Solutions Ecosystem Programme in Nigeria

Co-creation HUB and Edo State Government, have announced calls for Edo tech startups looking to join the “Strengthening Edo State’s Digital Solutions Ecosystem programme”, which aims at creating economic opportunities for people, especially marginalized groups, who do not have access to capital and other resources to grow and scale their businesses.

The program is aimed at helping startups achieve remarkable growth and scale! The program offers crucial provisions like training, mentorship, funding and go-to-market support to ensure long-term success for ventures in Edo State. Ultimately, the program will strengthen the state ecosystem and give targeted groups the opportunity to live a productive life.

We offer sub-grant support to 50 startups through two programs – the Inclusion-Focused Support and the Innovation Challenge Program for diverse startups with underrepresented founders and teams (women) and the Innovation Challenge for all tech startups with innovative ideas and products, offering grant funding for those with market potential.

The Innovation Challenge programme (30 Startups/10k USD Each) is open to Edo-indigene-led tech startups with a working product, technical expertise, gender diversity, and solutions across all sectors. They should also explain how their technology can help solve problems in Edo state. Women-led or gender-diverse teams prioritizing marginalized communities and sustainable development goals are encouraged to apply.

On the other hand, the
Inclusion-Focused Support Programme (20 Startups/20k USD Each) is for tech startups and companies led by talent from Edo state. Such ventures should have a functioning prototype past the idea stage and be tested for market validation. The team should be diverse, including people with marketing, business development skills, and other relevant areas besides technical expertise.

“We are glad that CcHUB, a pioneering force within Nigeria’s startup ecosystem, will be the implementing partner of the “Strengthening Edo State’s Digital Solutions Ecosystem Project”, says Precious Izoduwa Asemota, the Executive Director of Edo Innovates.

NB: This initiative is an equity-free grant to support innovators in Edo State and not an investment. This Call for Application has been announced by Co-creation Hub as the implementation partner and is not affiliated with any Federal Government Ministry.
