Accion Venture Lab believes that startups can re-imagine what is possible and bring transformative innovations to the financial services sector. To that end, we have invested in more than 30 startups around the world that leverage innovative technology and business models to offer financial solutions that are of higher quality, cheaper, faster, more convenient, safer, and more accessible than the status quo – including Nigeria’s own Lidya.
Accion Venture Lab’s Company Builder (AVLCB) is bringing together extraordinary people to build inclusive consumer-facing fintech startups from scratch in Nigeria. AVLCB will work with you to build the business from the ground up, leveraging our global knowledge and expertise in fintech models for financial inclusion and providing financial and non-financial support as the business scales.
For us, fintech includes all types of financial services businesses (including insurance), as well as those that help to increase access to financial services (alternative credit scoring, phycometrics). While we are looking for people with financial services, technical, and product expertise, other relevant experience may include blockchain, data science, game development, FMCG/MNO distribution, and digital security.
