Apply For VC4A Mentor-Driven Capital Program Nigeria 2022

Do you have some free time and are a seasoned business expert, entrepreneur, or investor? Do you want to play a bigger part in Nigeria’s burgeoning startup environment and make a real difference? Then consider joining the VC4A Mentor-Driven Capital Program as a mentor.

VC4A’s approach to producing value for startup ecosystems around the world is called “mentor-driven capital.” It’s about finding and supporting motivated and experienced mentors β€” people like you – who can share their expertise, experience, and network with aspiring entrepreneurs. You gain valuable insights into the local startup ecosystem while also honing your own mentoring, business, and leadership abilities as you help your mentee on his or her entrepreneurial journey.

The Mentor-Driven Capital structure built by this program is designed to improve your skills as a high-powered mentor. You and your fellow business leaders will receive expert assistance, training, and hands-on support in the area of mentoring, as well as participate in interactive workshops on topics such as corporate partnership development and angel investment.

The program is limited to 20 aspiring business mentors in Nigeria, or those with strong ties to – and an interest in – the country. During the approximately 4-month program, all you need to contribute is your valuable time, knowledge, and network!
