Bosun Tijani, CcHUB CEO, Launches Initiative to Support “Extremely Unlikely Entrepreneurs”

‘Bosun Tijani, co-founder and CEO of Lagos-based incubator and accelerator, Co-creation Hub (CcHUB), has announced the launch of an initiative to support “extremely unlikely entrepreneurs” through grants.


Called Seed40, the initiative is aimed at identifying and investing in micro-enterprises through an informal network of mentors.

Mentors are required to pitch an entrepreneur who runs a micro-enterprise [1] in their locality in a short video, mentioning how they intend to help them grow and how far the initiative’s grant will go in their business.

Once the application is completed [2] and the video shared, an assessment is done to determine if the business qualifies to get a grant (not investment) of ₦100,000. One micro-enterprise will receive grants per month.

The initiative is majorly centred around the mentors, as they are required to be available to support short-listed businesses. Also, they must provide updates on the progress of the businesses.

Interested in this initiative? You can nominate an entrepreneur in your locality right away. Applications can be submitted at anytime during 2017 as all applications will be carried over every month for consideration.

[1] A microenterprise by definition is a business operating on a very small scale and in few cases supported by microcredit. For context, “a fried yam” or “roasted plantain” seller will qualify for Seed40.

[2] This must be completed by a mentor on behalf of an entrepreneur. Applications made directly by an entrepreneur will not be considered.

  4. Hey! I know this is kind of off-topic but I had to ask.

    Does building a well-established blog such as yours take a lot
    of work? I’m brand new to writing a blog but I do write
    in my diary every day. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal
    experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips
    for brand new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

  5. The tab, shedding a a long time-long war of attrition with the
    Murdoch-owned New York Put up — each money drains to the tune of tens of millions of dollars yearly — not too long ago upped its newsstand worth to $1.25 from $zero.seventy five.

  6. One thing is definite: There’s by no means been a better time to
    be a fan, as a result of it is by no means been simpler to maintain up
    with the world of sports activities. With that in thoughts,
    be part of us as we break down what each league has to offer within the digital age we’re in.

  7. After I originally commented I appear to have clicked
    the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a
    comment is added I recieve 4 emails with the exact same comment.
    Perhaps there is a means you are able to remove me from that service?

    Thank you!

  8. Watching professional gamers select their champions is just as
    partaking as the actual gameplay – there is immense technique concerned in crafting a robust,
    balanced staff. It is like a speedy-fire NFL draft that takes place before every sport.
    (And out of the blue, I believe I understand the existence of the Draft subsection on ).
