CcHUB and the Mastercard Foundation have announced the selection of twelve startups for the first cohort of the Mastercard Foundation Ed-Tech Fellowship Programme in Nigeria.

 

After a rigorous selection process spanning three months, these startups have been chosen for their innovative solutions that meet the robust criteria outlined by the Mastercard Foundation and CcHUB.

 

The selected startups represent a diverse range of educational technology solutions that aim to address key issues in the EdTech space.

 

The startups include EduTAM, which offers a cloud-based school management system with a focus on API-based connectivity and interoperability; 9ijakids, an online platform that uses games to create exciting learning experiences for children; and Gradely, a solution that provides personalized learning through interactive videos, practice tests, and live tutoring.

 

Other startups include Money Africa, which offers financial literacy education through digital content and personalized advisory services; NKENNE, an African language learning app with a focus on African culture and building social communities; and Davtonlearn, a learning management system for corporate organisations to train their staff.

 

The selected startups also include Qataloog, an online curator of curriculum-relevant content for learners across various education levels; SabiTeach, an online learning platform connecting learners with qualified teachers for private sessions; and Schoolinka, a platform that upskills teachers and accelerates top teaching talent to improve education standards in Africa.

 

Additionally, Go2Course provides a virtual school platform for creators and students to connect and learn; Kunda Kids Ltd offers an edtech app with African-inspired stories and language learning content for children; and Schoola provides a learning platform for K-12 schools with gamification and interactive lesson preparation tools.

 

The Mastercard Foundation’s Ed-Tech Fellowship Programme aims to support the growth of the African EdTech ecosystem, promoting innovation and advancing promising practices in technology-based learning and teaching. The programme seeks to benefit African learners, education systems, and EdTech innovators across the continent.

 

In line with the goal of inclusion and gender balance, CcHUB and the Mastercard Foundation intentionally reached out to female-led startups during the selection process. As a result, 9 out of the 12 selected startups have female founders and management personnel.

 

All the selected startups will receive funding and advisory services to scale their operations and make a greater impact in Nigeria and beyond. The programme officially commenced in Lagos and will include a 6-month accelerator phase led by the CcHUB team, with ongoing advisory support over the following 12 months.

 

This partnership between CcHUB and the Mastercard Foundation is part of the broader Mastercard Foundation EdTech Fellowship Programme, which aims to support EdTech companies across Africa addressing learning challenges in K-12, tertiary education, and vocational training. The programme aims to contribute to addressing the long-standing educational challenges faced by Africa’s young population, including enrollment, quality, and availability of effective educational options.
