CcHUB to host Google Developers Launchpad Start in Lagos
Co-Creation Hub (CcHUB), a Nigerian social innovation centre, has announced it will host the Google Developers Launchpad Start in Lagos from 6th to 10th November, 2017.
This is the first time Google will be holding its Launchpad Developers Start in Nigeria. The programme is a one-week bootcamp designed to equip early stage startups with requisite skills and knowledge that will help enhance their growth and scalability.
Each day of the bootcamp will be dedicated to teaching key subjects like product strategy, UX/UI, technology, marketing and business development, according to a statement on CcHUB’s website. There will also be presentations, one on one mentorship and instructor-led workshops.
Bosun Tijani, CEO and Co-founder, CcHUB, said his organization is delighted to host the Google Developers Launchpad Start. “In the past 7 years we have worked with a number of early stage startups through our pre-incubation programmes where we have helped them build high-performing products and services enabled by technology,” he explained.
“The goal of the bootcamp is to provide, among other things, in-person mentoring, which addresses one of our functions to the ecosystem, to activate knowledge networks. We are certain that the knowledge gained from the Google Developers Launchpad Start will address the technical talent gap by strengthening the pool and also contribute to advancing the human potential within the teams of each of the startups that will sign up.”
The criteria for tech startups interested in the programme include: they must have been in operation for 6-18 months with little or no revenue or users , have a minimum viable product(MVP), and have at least two co-founders (one must be a technical co-founder).
