Lagos-based accelerator, iDea is opening its facility for students and freelancers under a new programme it’s calling the iDea Open House.

Participants in this initiative according to the accelerator, will have access to iDEA facility every last Friday and Saturday of the month for free.

“They also have access to free tech trainings every Tuesday. For those who are interested in being a member of iDEA, they will have an opportunity to apply to be a member of a very competitive 4-space Student membership slots,” the accelerator said.

The organisers require that applicants be either software developers or UX designers. They are also expected to be open to feedback and willing to collaborate.

The first edition of the open house will hold on the 28th and 29th of August in Lagos and iDea says it hopes to forge a synergy between the incubator and higher institutions via the programme, and also have more students embrace entrepreneurship and technology.

The Open House initiative is currently open to student innovators in University of Lagos and Yaba College of Technology and freelancers based in Lagos, with plans to extend the programme to Obafemi Awolowo University and Covenant University in November.

Intersted individuals can apply for the Open House Programme here.
