What if the
Incorruptible bench
was found taking bribes ?

Civichub is already doing something about it


A generation ago, it was virtually impossible for Nigerians to make a demand on Government except by protests and civil disobedience. Today, we have seen campaigns like #Budget of Corruption force the Government to withdraw a national budget filled with inflated costs and re-introduce a new one after proper review. The Civic Hub was conceived out of the startup accelerator model, which has been critical to the global entrepreneurship renaissance.

It answers these critical questions:

  • “How does someone passionate about creating a change in the society get started”?
  • “Why can’t there be a learning environment for those who are passionate about building new and effective social interventions”?
  • “Can the same tools, techniques and technologies that have been used to build the most profitable products and services across the world, be used to build the most impactful social interventions”?.
