We are launching the first stream of our all-women business incubator in Lagos!

The Kick-SMEBizInfo Incubator is licensed by Fledge Co Seattle and designed exclusively for Women Entrepreneurs, to meet their peculiar needs and set their businesses on the path of success, especially in the current difficult business terrain.

Kick is your business incubator, here to help you through the difficult path from idea through start-up or at any stage of your business where you realise you need help, irrespective of the kind of the type of business you run and whether you run a for-profits, non-profits or a hybrid model.

The programme is designed to help you understand your customers, the market you play in, and with that knowledge, find a path to sustainable revenues.

There are dozens of Kick incubators around the world and though each program is slightly different, they all include:
• Kicking your business forward
• Creating a weekly plan
• Sticking to that plan
• Sharing your progress with your peers
• Guidance with local mentors
• Peer mentorship, amongst the participants
• Plus coaching for business plan competitions, Angel groups, and other investors
• Assistance with accessing funding and various kinds of opportunities for your business.
• Entrepreneurial education, based on: The Next Step curriculum: Guiding you from idea to startup, by Michael “Luni” Libes
