Forbes Nigeria Accelerator Program

Digital video-on-demand platform, Forbes8, has launched Nigeria’s First Resilience Digital Startup Accelerator program. The program, hosted by Forbes8 and powered by the Global Startup Ecosystem, is making a historic move to train and support Nigerian small and medium-sized businesses and scaling startups.

The free virtual accelerator will take in 100 top companies from Nigeria. Founders selected for the program will undergo 4 intensive weeks of digital training to help them build and scale their companies for the future.

Global Startup Ecosystem has previously launched the Africa Digital Startup Accelerator through its subsidiary, Africa Startup Ecosytem.

Forbes8 was launched by Forbes to provide entrepreneurs access to the top business mogul community in order to show them “how to make it” and thrive as a business pioneer today. 

Admission into the accelerator program is free, there is no equity ask, and no obligation is required on the part of the founders. Accepted companies will have access to live virtual accelerator training for 4 weeks, access to the Forbes8 community and to $100k in free credits and perks from AWS, Google Cloud, IBM Cloud and Sendgrid.
