Co-creation Hub (CcHUB), Nigeria’s first social innovation centre based in Lagos, announced Monday that three (3) new ventures were admitted to its Incubation program. They will each receive seed funding ($15,000 – $25,000), mentoring, business development support and office space critical to their quest to find repeatable business models that can rapidly grow their business.
They include CcHUB’s first Internet of things (iOT) venture, an online community for mothers & mothers-to-be and a platform for car owners to buy genuine auto parts & discover all things motoring.
GRIT Systems develops web-enabled technology for controlling and gathering data about household & commercial electrical power consumption.
Mamalette is a platform where Nigerian mothers and mothers-to-be interact to provide mutual support and community throughout the motherhood experience
Autobox is a platform for car owners to discover & purchase genuine auto parts and find tips on everything motoring.
Since inception in 2011, CcHUB has worked with over fifty (50) early stage ventures through its pre-incubation and incubation programs. Grit Systems, Mamalette and Autobox join a pool of exciting ventures in the portfolio including Traclist, Truppr, Wecyclers and Vacantboards. CcHUB in December 2014 graduated BudgIT, the first venture in its incubation portfolio.
