The companies have partnered to launch an SME Accelerator program, empowering and expediting small business growth in Nigeria. This initiative supports Nigerian SMEs’ role in driving economic growth and job creation at a crucial time.

The SME Accelerator addresses challenges like limited capital, technology, market access, and mentorship faced by small businesses. The program is specifically designed to foster innovation, enhance competitiveness, drive growth, and create sustainable employment opportunities.

Ayoba and Adanian Labs’ partnership combines comprehensive app features with technology solutions expertise for enhanced communication, entertainment, and e-commerce. By leveraging these capabilities, the SME Accelerator program will provide Nigerian SMEs with crucial resources, such as digitalization, mentorship, access to networks, technological support, and facilitation of funding partnerships, enabling them to overcome barriers and achieve sustainable growth.
