Poised to address most challenges start-ups face in the country, ECSCorp has earmarked $2m for ‘Incubator Reality Show’.
In a chat on Thursday, the lead consultant of ECSCorp, Tayo Richards, said the new reality show would leverage partnership with platforms and corporate organisations to help young enterpreneurs.
He said that enterpreneurs, who participate in the programme, would gain business knowledge and information that would position them for greater opportunities.
According to Richards, start-ups have the power to transform cities where they operate by attracting migration of skills from other countries, as well as improving the economy with innovation.
The 12-week programme will offer start-ups skills that they cannot get in a business school, he added.
“The Incubator Reality Show will offer essential start-up skills and practical knowledge they will not get in business school. They will be incubated for 22 weeks and graduate with honours, not searching for jobs. They will rather employ people to work with them, create business opportunities and drive business growth.
“It will showcase the strength of partnerships, competition of innovation and its viability, cutting time to market and the influence of businesses mentorship. The participants must have the right attitude for success, entrepreneurial drive with originality, excellent communication skills that include oral and written, and be good team players,” he added.
The show will host 25 brilliant minds drawn from across the length and breadth of the country and from the diaspora.
