Co-Creation Hub (CcHub) is a launch pad for start-ups, transforming ideas to sustainable ventures that solve real Nigerian problems. To date CcHub has supported the development and launch of more than 50 innovative and socially-impacting technology startups including BudgIT, Wecyclers, and Efiko.

Will the next golden idea come from you?

You can submit an innovative idea that solves a real Nigerian problem to the CcHub Call for Ideas for up to $25,000 in investment as well as networks and market entry support to get you kick-started.

The aim of the programme is to encourage the development of Nigerian led solutions for real Nigerian problems, focusing on six key areas – Governance, Transportation, Healthcare, Education, Food Security and the Environment.

We believe that by engaging a community of progressive stakeholders (end-users, subject matter experts, government agencies, businesses, academics, civil societies etc.) who bring their creativity and knowledge to play we can co-create solutions to social challenges faced by the average Nigerian.

These are our 5 tips for creating innovative solutions:

  1. Solve ONE clear problem: focus on one problem and not many

  2. Understand the problem: observing the environment, infrastructure, culture and lives of people by being there.

  3. Think creatively: start big, use constraints as a filter and find the simplest solution.

  4. Identify a service gap: is there a service that isn’t being provided or not being provided to a satisfactory manner   

  5. Deliver value: what are the benefits for people using the end product, does it improve a persons life?
