Some background

BudgIT initially conceptualised and developed in Nigeria’s foremost technology hub, Co-Creation Hub. BudgIT is a product of the Tech-In-Governance hackathon in 2011. We have had four iterations of our website and also recently relaunched our mobile apps. We have moved from being a co-founders' startup to a thriving organisation meeting social goals through budget awareness and simplification and also providing support for corporate and development partners.

Founded in 2011. A team of 8 people mainly creative designers, data wranglers and developers. The first startup to launch in the Co-Creation Hub and also the creative engine of civic awesomeness that makes Nigerian sterile data a beauty to behold. We have acess to state budgets and also developing a new product called Tracka.
