The Start-up Sandbox project is a 3-month incubation program for early-stage start-ups to build, validate and develop their businesses into profitable & sustainable enterprises to stimulate the creation of jobs in Nigeria.
The project is aimed at the enterprise development of youth-led businesses and the capacity development of young entrepreneurs using experiential learning with design thinking tools to validate and scale impactful start-ups in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The Start-up Sandbox project is designed to build 30 youth-led- businesses with minimum viable products from market entry – iteration – to investment-ready start-ups. We are supporting start-ups in diverse sectors including but not limited to Agriculture, Agri-Tech, Education, IoT, Fintech, Green energy.
Weekly working sessions facilitated by seasoned experts will be conducted.
