Lagos Innovates is being run by the Lagos State Employment Trust Fund, which is tasked with supporting businesses with funds and the tools to become sustainable and create employment.

Lagos Innovates has already launched 3 programs that you can apply for before Friday 12th January; and will launch more in the course of the year. Specifically, you can now apply for:

 

For Founders: Workspace Vouchers
