Lagos, Nigeria; December 8, 2015
MobileMonday Nigeria has partnered with Airtel Nigeria in launching an initiative tagged ‘Catapult-a-Startup’ which aims to inspire innovation and assist mobile app developers (who are aspiring to be startup founders) towards actualizing their business goals and dreams.
With this initiative, Airtel and Mobile Monday Nigeria alongside other partners are offering a platform for budding mobile app developers to receive advanced mentoring from industry veterans, funding, and marketing.
To participate in the programme, interested start-ups are to submit their ideas and presentations to the ‘Catapult-a-Startup’ website – http://www.cas.ng, for evaluation.
After the initial evaluation, selected start-ups will be invited to pitch their ideas to a panel of esteemed judges who will do a thorough evaluation and select the best startup ideas. The winners will be subsequently supported with cash prizes, mentoring, funding, marketing and a chance to integrate their developed apps and services on the Airtel platform gaining direct access to the Telco’s large customer base.
