Four Nigerian startups have become   finalists in the second class of Google Launchpad Accelerator Africa. The four are among 11 chosen from six African nations.

Google Launchpad Accelerator programme is one of Google’s initiatives that support the African entrepreneurial ecosystem. The 11 finalists from six countries include AppZone (Nigeria) that built a software service (SaaS) for fintech ecosystems for digital banks, allowing them to reduce operational costs while improving service delivery.

Divulging the startups that influenced the second class stage in Lagos, The head of Startup Success and Services, Launchpad Accelerator Africa, Mr Fola Olatunji-David, said the class was part of the Google’s ongoing efforts to support entrepreneurship on the continent.

He said that each of the finalists would receive three months intense mentoring and support from Google, Cloud and Firebase Credits, three weeks all-expensepaid training at Launchpad Accelerator Africa (Lagos and Johannesburg).

He said they would also have access to Google engineers, resources and mentors during and after the programme inclusion in the Launchpad Accelerator Global Community and network of alumni and mentors. According to him, applicants needed to be an early stage technology startup based in sub-Saharan Africa, targeting the African market that had already raised seed funding.

Earlier, the Country Director, Mrs Juliet Ehimuan-Chiazor, said that Google had been committed for years to helping local businesses thrive online, saying that they were meaningful and crucial partners in our ecosystem.

“Through our different initiatives, we have helped to get tens of thousands of small businesses online, and helped them to succeed,” she said. “We are incredibly proud of how Launchpad Accelerator Africa ‘Class 1’ contributed to that legacy and cannot wait to see how ‘Class 2’ further builds on it.”
