The Diaspora Challenge

The Diaspora Challenge

The Diaspora Challenge by the Co-Creation Hub (CcHub) aims to mobilise the Nigerian Diaspora community to build scalable business solutions to social challenges in Africa.




30 Jun 2017


Six finalists will receive:

Prototype Funding
$15,000 per idea to fund prototype development

Business Advisory Services
Provision of insight in support of strategic planning & execution

Seed Investment
On the path for up to $250,000 (two hundred and fifty thousand dollars) seed investment from Growth Capital

Market Access & Network
Connection to strategic partners in African countries to support market entry processes

Connection to mentors to provide honest & constructive feedback as well as industry guidance when necessary.

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.
