In alignment with its mission, the Tech Hub is set to introduce an impact-driven accelerator program named ‘Social Innovation-Driven Entrepreneurship.’ This program, conceived in collaboration with Network Incubators and Innovators in Nigeria, is tailored for entrepreneurs dedicated to making a positive difference in society.
