An idea-stage accelerator and startup launch program, The Founder Institute, has launched a new chapter in Nigeria, while targeting to work with 20 tech startups in the country, annually.
To celebrate the launch, the Lagos Founder Institute will host a series of free startup events for the general public. During these events, attendees will learn how to build a company and learn more about the program.

In addition, the Lagos 2019 program will include the Founder Institute’s newest company-building curriculum suitable to address the needs of advanced founders (MVP stage) as well as aspiring new entrepreneurs at the idea-stage – a project just released this year in collaboration with hundreds of startup leaders across the globe.
The Lagos Chapter will once again be led by local startup leaders Chukwuemeka Fred Agbata Jnr., Co-founder, GoDo.ng and presenter, Tech Trends on Channels TV, Oluwarotimi Fasuyi; CEO, VasDigiMobility, Wande Adalemo, and co-founder, Maisematrix Consulting, Ifedy Eze.
