Nigerian Computer Society to Support Startups with N50 million

The Nigeria Computer Society (NCS), the umbrella body for all Information Technology (IT) practitioners in Nigeria, is set to support further innovation among technology startups.

The society is targeting this with the launch of N50 million grant that will be spread among qualified tech startups.

It was revealed that the N50 million, which is an initial seed fund, will be raised through a fund raising at the 2021 National Information Technology Merit Awards (NITMA), an annual NCS conference and award, holding at the MUSON Centre in Onikan, Lagos.

President of NCS, Prof. Adesina Sodiya, who announced the initiative at a press conference in Lagos this week, said the N50 million would be part of NCS’ contribution to technology innovation among startups.
