Sprout Lab is Nigeria’s first incubator for female social entrepreneurs ready to launch their big idea for tackling the world’s toughest challenges. The Lab is a Start Up activation that offers an immersive experience to equip the most promising enterprises convert their social vision into sustainable ventures.
During the 4-week intensive bootcamp, incubatees go through robust 12-Module Curriculum based on a proven pathway for social enterprise startup, and including specialized skill sessions, business planning, vertical incubation that offers no-holds-barred access to industry leaders in their sectors, selective internships at innovative companies, coaching, start-up support services (including company registration, accounting, legal services, branding, website and graphic design, volunteer recruitment etc.) as well as Pitch Practices.
Our fine-tuned incubation methodology allows the flow of creative energy, freedom, questioning with judgment and collaboration. It gives change agents at the beginning of their impact journey the physical and intellectual space to craft their theory of change and practice their audaciousness. Through the Sprout Lab, we are disrupting the status quo of how we change society – because we believe entrepreneurs can make a change and make profit too!
By the end of the Lab, you’d clarify your Problem Statement, create a Social Enterprise Plan (the equivalent of a Business Plan), Business Model Canvass and build a Strategy Mountain for your work. The focus on your personality and leadership also helps you unbundle your strengths and proficiencies, areas of need as well as craft a Development Gap Plan. We will also show you research-based insights on the Social Sector Landscape in Nigeria, to help plot your go-to-market roadmap.
