Africa Leadership Forum (ALF) and LoftyInc Allied Partners Limited (LAPL), program partners in the recently launched Innovation Incubation Initiative (I-3), are pleased to announce the opening of the application window into the first permanent platform for business incubation in Nigeria.
The platform to be known as the Wennovation Hub ( www.wennovationhub.com ) occupies a thousand square feet exclusive space at ALF’s brand new headquarter facility at Lagos, in the capital city of Ikeja. The incubator will also have use of ancillary training and support space at the same brand new campus. LoftyInc will operate the facility in partnership with ALF.
Strategically positioned in the industrial district of Plot C, Obasa Road, off Oba Akran Road, the Wennovation Hub will be used for training, mentoring and developing the cutting edge ideas that will drive the new ECOWAS economy. Business space and funding will also be provided at the end of the initial 6-9 months duration program, starting March 2011.
We are seeking 15-25 bright young innovators, and incubating them using a unique model (collaborative partnership) we have developed in-house. Our goal is to incubate 3-5 high impact businesses annually. These businesses will be innovative, forward leaning and high growth: focused specifically on mass employment and reshaping the sectors within which they operate.
