The coronavirus pandemic crippled a lot of businesses and brought economies to its knees.

In the midst of all that, though, emerged some start-ups determined to help their economies overcome this impact.

About last month, the iNOVO Accelerator program was born from the partnership between Ventures Platform, Startupbootcamp AfriTech and UK-Nigeria Tech Hub to help these start-ups to achieve their goals.

As of the time the accelerator program was announced, more than 750 worthy applicants submitted for consideration. Only ten would eventually be chosen, though.

The lucky start-ups that would take part in the mentorship and training include:

  • Agriple – provides farmers actionable data to determine what crop is best to cultivate
  • Farmer First Technologies – financial player providing loans to farmers, and putting them in touch with buyers with better offers
  • Foodbank.ng – reduces food wastage while providing food items to households at competitive prices
  • Rural Farmers Hub – almost real-time advisory for farmers on crops, using satellite-based imagery.
  • Afrilearn – gamified learning platform with video-based learning modules
  • DigiLearns – AI-based learning tool with access to high quality educational content.

The others that round up the list are Schoola, Gleeworld Pharmacy, Wellvis and Pharmasev Health Project.

The program is expected to last three months during which these startups will also be exposed to a wide range of investors, amongst other resources that they will benefit from.
