Nigerian digital content distribution platform, Publiseer, founded by identical twin brothers, computer programmers and Internet entrepreneurs, Chidi Nwaogu and Chika Nwaogu, has been selected as a finalist for the Halcyon Incubator’s Fall 2019 Fellowship. Out of 423 applications, the for-profit social venture has emerged one of the top 16 finalists competing for 8 spots in Cohort 11 of the Fellowship, and we’re very proud of this accomplishment.
The digital content distribution platform for independent African creatives from low-income communities will pitch before the Selections Committee on Tuesday, May 14th, to secure a spot in the Fellowship.
