Office for ICT Innovation & Entrepreneurship (OIIE) Programme for NYSC Members
The OIIE ICT Innovation and Entrepreneurship programme for NYSC Members aims to stimulate, engage, develop and support Nigerian corp members that have unique innovative ICT solutions, products or ICT-driven business ideas (addressing specific socio-economic challenges) that can be turned into viable ICT businesses within one to two years.
Successful corper startups will be engaged after their service year for incubation or acceleration. NITDA OIIE will bankroll the business incubation cost, securing their placements in some of the successful ICT incubators and accelerators in the country.
Note that while some organisers may accept applications from all around the world, you may still be required to travel to the host country in order to take part in the later stages of a competition for instance, or you may be required to live there for a period of time to take part in a funded programme (e.g. scholarship, incubator, accelerator).
Multiple host countries may mean that no travel is required.
