NINJA Accelerator Program in Nigeria 2022;

The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has in 2021 mapped an ecosystem report of Nigeria’s startup and entrepreneurial ecosystem, focusing on the agritech, health tech or cleantech sectors.

The ecosystem mapping report identified noticeable gaps in the following subsectors within the Agritech innovation space; logistics, cold chain monitoring and insurance. In the HealthTech sector, gaps were discovered in food, mobile health/fitness apps, health marketing and many more sub-sectors. Unlike the agricultural and health tech sectors, the clean tech sector in Nigeria is in its growth phase and with the global shift towards environmental sustainability and responsibility there is a need to support innovation in this sector.

Next Innovation with Japan (NINJA) Accelerator in Nigeria – 2nd Cohort is designed to improve the Nigerian startup ecosystem by strengthening underperforming and necessary sub-sectors in sectors (such as agriculture, health and cleantech) in Nigeria. It is expected to have collaboration between participants in the supply chain, contribute significantly to economic growth and stimulate promising young people with innovative companies.

The Ninja Accelerator’s 2nd cohort will be conducted entirely online.
