The Ventures Platform Demo day 2 held on the 15th of September at Genesis Cinemas, Palms Shopping Mall, Lagos. The aim of the Demo Day was to showcase the startups to investors in hopes that they’d write cheques or strike partnerships. The event had over 100 investors in attendance.
Six startups pitched their ideas and operations. They include: Accounteer, a localized online accounting platform for small businesses; Gerocare, which provides affordable regular preventive home health care for the elderly; MyPadi, a real estate start-up providing off-campus accommodation for university, college students and young professionals; VIVA, a service that provides the same quality of in-flight entertainment available on planes to passengers on long-distance buses over Wi-Fi and without internet; ThriveAgric, a platform that helps crowdsource resources to enable farmers access better inputs and scale their outputs; and DriversNG, a website to conveniently hire professionally trained and verified drivers in 24 hours.
