First is Davtonlearn, a cloud-based e-learning platform for professional courses, Tuteria, an online tutoring service, Legal Form, a registration portal for companies, land, vehicles, work permits, food and drugs, Piggybank.ng, a service built by Sharphire Global that helps you save by automatically debiting your account at regular intervals, Quick Gas, an online cooking gas retailing platform, Kangpe, a med-tech platform that connects patients with verified doctors via SMS, their mobile app, Grit Systems, a startup that makes an internet enabled and Social Lender, a short-term loan service that is deeply integrated with user social profiles.

“Our mission is to discover startups that come from bustling, emerging economies like Nigeria and give them access to opportunities for support and funding,” Benjamin Benaim said (he’s the founding partner at Seedstars) “Specially this year, we have launched our first physical co-working space in Nigeria called Seedspace, and the Seedstars Academy, where we are constantly striving to add more value to our startups. Therefore, I am very excited for our Seedstars World event in Lagos.”
