Our next guest on the Fidelity SME Forum is Victoria Fabunmi, Investment Manager, Growth Capital Fund at Co-Creation Hub (CcHUB). Co-Creation Hub, popularly known as CcHUB, is a foremost indigenous social innovation centre that is dedicated to the incubation, acceleration, funding and capacity development of technology-driven enterprises.
Located in the heart of Yaba, Lagos, CcHUB is Nigeria’s first open living lab where technologists, entrepreneurs, investors, government and the private sector converge to identify and nurture novel solutions to the various socioeconomic challenges confronting the country. Multi-functional and collaborative by design, CcHUB has since 2011 supported the growth of a community passionate about the role of technology in transforming Nigeria.
To date, more than a hundred ideas and companies have benefitted from the funding access, incubation resource and enabling infrastructure support provided by the technology hub. Some of their leading startups include LifeBank, BudgIT and Wecyclers. These companies have, in turn, created over 500 jobs since they were founded.
In 2015, CcHUB launched Growth Capital Fund (GC Fund), a social innovation fund that is aimed at creating an unprecedented path to scale for innovative businesses driving social change in the country. The fund supports high-potential, early-stage businesses building next generation infrastructure using technology. Participating investors bring their experience, resources and networks together to work for investees to catalyze their path to growth.
