Wennovation Hub has opened up its FCMB Agri-Tech Incubation Program, to assist early-stage Agri-tech start-ups in Nigeria.
The Wennovation Hub program, in partnership with the bank, aims at innovators, developing a tech-based solution that would ensure food security in Nigeria.
This partnership would, also, see that, early-stage entrepreneurs, are guided, to test and validate their ideas, as well as, gather their first set of customers, or, pivot, if need be.
This is achieved, through a combination of financial support, training and guidance. Asides from these, the partnership, also, prepares these start-ups for acceleration.
Applications should focus on these problem statements:
– Processing and Storage
– Marketing and Sales
