The FbStart Accelerator at NG_HUB is a deep-tech focused accelerator program for visionary and innovative teams using advanced technologies to solve problems in our society and build solutions for the future.
It is designed to provide up to $20,000 in equity-free funding and support to innovative startup and student teams building solutions that utilize any of these technologies; Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, Internet of Things, Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR).
To engage with students and promote the benefits of the Accelerator program, we would be visiting 13 cities across Nigeria in 30 days. The roadshows would feature top people from Facebook and CcHUB Nigeria and would be focused on exploring exciting tech in higher institutions and discovering students (Phd, Msc & Bsc) daring to build solutions for the future. The roadshows would feature;
Interactive sessions to discuss deep tech and the opportunities they present
A Q&A session about the FbStart Accelerator and what teams need to know about applying.
Demo of interesting solutions already built by students with the chance to get on-the-spot feedback
A showcase of Deep Tech solutions built locally.
Swags from Facebook, Games, food, fun and more.
