Accion Venture Lab opens applications for 2nd Company Builder programme

Investment firm Accion Venture Lab has opened applications for the second edition of its Company Builder programme, which aims to build innovative Nigerian fintech startups from scratch.

Accion Venture Lab, the seed-stage investment initiative of global non-profit Accion, first launched Company Builder last year, aimed at building inclusive fintech startups from scratch to reach the millions of financially underserved Nigerians.

A number of startups were formed during the first edition, and Accion Venture Lab is now looking for more prospective entrepreneurs to take part in the second cohort. Participants will generate ideas and form startup teams to develop and refine their concepts, with selected teams moving on to a testing phase and the overall winner gaining Accion support as they transition to full-time founders.
