Dubbed “Pathfinders”, the Leadpath Nigeria accelerator has opened its doors for a 3 month program which will see enrolled startups gain access to seed funding between $25k to $100k (depending on their needs and the size of the opportunity) and as well get mentoring and back office support like Legal, Accounting, Tax, Recruitment etc, to enable the companies focus on delivering a viable product to the market.
