The Bulb Africa™ – a platform connecting African innovation to global opportunities, is set to launch its Startup Academy to equip founders and budding entrepreneurs with the knowledge and experience that are required to successfully navigate the tasks of building a valuable company.
Startup Academy offers a free comprehensive 8-week virtual training where founders learn the art and science of problem-solving, design thinking, business development as well as leadership skills. Registration for the inaugural edition of the program which is set to hold in October is currently underway.
Speaking about the program, Mo Durosinmin-Etti – Program Manager at The Bulb Africa, stated that:
“Tech founders need a solid support system, and this is one of the benefits of attending The Startup Academy, as participants will have access to guidance from the ‘big guys’ in the sector. The participants will also enjoy access to our faculty’s network and mentorship”
Ife Oyedele II, the Co-Founder & Chief-Growth Officer of Kobo360 and a member of The Startup Academy Faculty echoed these sentiments when he said
“Venturing into the entrepreneurial world can be a very daunting task, but it can be an easier process with the right network and support. The Startup Academy initiative provides the tools, resources as well as network opportunities that are very practicable and can be employed throughout a founder’s entrepreneurial journey. If you’re looking to gain some valuable insight into the different aspects of your business, then the Startup Academy is for you.”
The 2020 Startup Academy faculty includes a line-up of successful tech startup founders such as Judith Okonkwo of Imisi 3D, Nadayar Enegesi of Eden, and accomplished professionals in tech such as Tosin Faniro-Dada, Joel Ogunsola, and Karin Hurt.
