The Co-Creation Hub is the nucleus of Yabacon Valley (hehe), so it makes sense that the fireside chat that Startup Grind Lagos is hosting with two of the Co-Creation Hub’s founders.
Femi Longe is the director of its Open Living Labs. Hackathons, development initiatives, collaborations with corporates, NGOs, that sort of thing, are his department. Tunji Eleso is the director is pre-incubation and works directly with the startups that the CcHub nurtures to help them scale.
What the CcHub’s founders have achieved in the past five years, is nothing short of amazing. They’ve spawned a technology cluster, maintained a launchpad of for multiple generations of startup entrepreneurs, and have recently created a relatively sizeable seed fund for Nigerian startups. If you are in Lagos, are free on Saturday the 20th, between the hours of 3pm and 6pm, and want to learn more about the work that the CcHub (this is important, because not a lot of people understand it), this is as good an opportunity as you’ll get.
The event is free to attend. Find out more and register here.
