About this Event

The FbStart Accelerator at NG_HUB is a deep-tech focused accelerator program for visionary and innovative teams using advanced technologies to solve problems in our society and build solutions for the future.

It is designed to provide up to $20,000 in equity-free funding and support innovative startups and student teams in Nigeria and Ghana building solutions that utilize any of these technologies; Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, Internet of Things, Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR).

To engage with students and promote the benefits of the Accelerator program, we would be visiting 10 cities across Nigeria. We invite startups and students of tertiary institutions who are interested in deep tech and reside close to the cities we are visiting, to register for the roadshows. View the cities we are visiting and the rendezvous points here.

The roadshows would feature top people from Facebook and CcHUB Nigeria and would be focused on exploring exciting tech in higher institutions and discovering students (OND/HND, B.Sc, M.Sc & PhD) daring to build solutions for the future. The roadshows would feature;

  • Interactive sessions to discuss deep tech and the opportunities they present
  • A Q&A session about the FbStart Accelerator and what teams need to know about applying.
  • Demo of interesting solutions already built by students with the chance to get on-the-spot feedback
  • A showcase of Deep Tech solutions built locally.
  • Swags from Facebook, Games, food, fun and more.
