Richards-Owolabi stressed that ‘The Incubator Reality’ will offer essential startup skills and practical knowledge they will not get in business school.
“They will be incubated for a period of 12 weeks and graduate with honours, not searching for jobs. They will rather employ people to work with them, create business opportunities and drive business growth.
“The initiative will showcase the strength of partnerships, competition of innovation and its viability, cutting time to market and the influence of businesses mentorship,” he added.
He said participants will showcase their brands and attract attention to their skills and innate talents that will make them achieve business success before they graduate from the incubator.

If they fit the description, they should watch out as the Incubator’s host will be coming to their city very soon. The Incubator will host 25 brilliant minds drawn from across the length and breadth of the country and the Diaspora.
“The contestants will go through a rigorous audition to prove their competence and eligibility for selection by the judges. They will work closely together to help cut time to market, monitor progress to ascertain trends, and exchange ideas to optimize delivery that churns out quality results,” he added.
