Co-creation Hub (CcHUB), Nigeria’s first social innovation centre based in Lagos has just announced three new start-ups have been admitted to its incubation program. Since inception in 2011, Co-creation Hub (CcHUB) has worked with over fifty early stage ventures through its pre-incubation and incubation programs.
The new additions include CcHUB’s first Internet of things (iOT) venture, an online community for mothers & mothers-to-be and a platform for car owners to buy genuine auto parts & discover all things motoring.
Here are the names to watch for the future
1. Grit systems develops web-enabled technology for controlling and gathering data about household & commercial electrical power consumption.
2. Mamalette is a platform where Nigerian mothers and mothers-to-be interact to provide mutual support and community throughout the motherhood experience
3. Autobox is a platform for car owners to discover & purchase genuine auto parts and find tips on everything motoring
The new start-ups will each receive seed funding ($15,000 – $25,000), mentoring, business development support and office space critical to their quest to find repeatable business models that can rapidly grow their business.
Grit Systems, Mamalette and Autobox join a pool of exciting ventures in the portfolio including Traclist, Truppr, Wecyclers and Vacantboards. CcHUB in December 2014 graduated BudgIT, the first venture in its incubation portfolio.
