C4DLab, the startup incubator/accelerator of the University of Nairobi has announced that startups may now apply to to its accelerator arm, the Africa Technology and Innovation Accelerator (AfTIA).

In March, Techcabal reported the decision of the incubator to also serve as a startup accelerator. The Lab had stated that “in order to create successful startups, they must go beyond the incubation stage”.

The programme welcomes applications from startups working prototypes in Fintech, AgriTech, EdTech, GovTech and HealthTech, according to Disrupt Africa. Acceleration services to be offered include $5,000 in seed funding (to each startup), a personalized coaching on business development and specialized startup development training.

“Though C4DLab has been incubating startups for a while now, we officially invite the first cohort of startups to submit their applications under the umbrella of AfTIA,” — CD4Lab.

AfTIA was launched by Dr. Vijoo Rattansi (Mrs), the chancellor of the University of Nairobi, during the Nairobi Innovation Week, and it will enable CD4Lab incubate/accelerate startups and facilitate the commercialization of their innovation.
