Problem

Vast inefficiencies in resource use and marketing is of Agricultural produce since the Agric sector is complex with many of its actors Dispersed. Therefore the sector is characterized with inequalities in access to financial technologies and market information.

1/3 of the food produced is wasted, equivalent to 1.6 billion tons. This occurs in more than 30% in the distribution, retail and trade stages. This has encouraged environmental pollution. High cost and inaccessibility to fresh and organic honey, fruits and vegetables. This has shifted individuals to mindless consumption of processed foods.
Unavailability of readily market for perishable produce. This has affected the standard living of farmers.
Inadequate access to farmers by third parties (Government, NGOs, Producers, etc)
Farmers inaccessibility to digital tools for agriculture

Solution

An online platform (e-Gardens) for farmers that helps in facilitating payments while farmers trade with one another and selling their produce online, thereby changing the marketplace of the Agric sector, its operational and financial efficiency. This helps in developing digital agrifinance services. It offers e-vouchers for direct benefit transfers and incentives for farmers and other agribusiness SMEs, and improved access to finance for startup and early-stage agritech enterprises.

https://www.loom.com/share/0ff9bfde5fe34834b1b5c931e436154a

What is the focus of your product?
What problem do you solve with your product?
Local skilled construction artisans (plumbers, carpenters, masons, etc.) have difficulty proving their value to customers. This is as a result of a lack of recognised certification.

This has caused a broken labor marketplace with frustration and financial loss for companies and tradespeople.

As a result, artisans are often underpaid for their services and lack access to benefits that can provide a safety net for themselves and their families.
What is your solution for the problem aforementioned?
Local certification is not well accepted by industry in Nigeria and the international certification is too expensive (~$500/certificate). LaborHack is bridging this gap by providing access to affordable certification (~$20/certificate) bench-marked against UK City & Guilds and UK ECITB.

Certified artisans are trained and matched to projects through an online marketplace. They are also linked to benefits including micro health insurance and micro credit to purchase work tools and safety gear.

https://youtu.be/Sl5QSNb25kE

What is the focus of your product?
What problem do you solve with your product?
It is one thing to be a a graduate, it is entirely another thing to be an employable graduate. Africa as a continent has a stream of graduates entering into the labour market with little or no professional skills as many switch careers. Besides, the educational system doesn’t give a room for personal and professional development, hence, the need for an initiative that addresses their need for relevant knowledge, skills set and certification.

On other hand, most institutions in Africa and oversee who provides these skills set training offer them at a very expensive rate.

It is on this premises my organization is positioned to bring these courses to their fingertips, at affordable rate and flexible payment plans where applicable as some of the courses we offer are free.

What is your solution for the problem aforementioned?
As a social enterprise, we have devised various courses we categorized as Free Short Courses, Premium Short Course and Professional Certification Courses to meet the need of young Africans eager to enhance their personal and professional skills.

For paid courses, we have a flexible installment payment plans to ease financial burdens with periodic coupons to ease access to these courses through our responsive and user-friendly website.
Please provide a short marketing/PR text about your solution.
Entering the labor market in this part of the world without necessary skill set and certification can be likened to a suicide mission. Gone are those days that getting these certification within the shortest possible time with well-structured content is impossible. With The Learnaholics Academy, you smartphone and internet connection will earn you necessary certifications with contents translatable to your local languages.

Enhancing quality education by harnessing digital technology is our thing. We are LEARNAHOLIC. LEARNING is our LIFESTYLE. Get INITIATED!

What is the focus of your product?
What problem do you solve with your product?
The menace of very low access to quality education due to factors such as socio-economic, cultural, and health which has resulted into having over 10.5 million out-of-school children. This is even more serious with the prevalent gender inequalities (low girl-child education) most especially in the northern part of Nigeria (as compared to the southern part of Nigeria).
School administration is also very time-consuming due to the manual mode of work (basically paper works) with the resultant loss of human hours in school management and unavailability of data for proper planning and critical decision making.

What is your solution for the problem aforementioned?
Creation of a cloud-based school management system with features that aids e-learning and local content creation.
Please provide a short marketing/PR text about your solution.
As every sector is undergoing a drastic change with the use of technology and leaving education out of the transformation effect will be a grave miscalculation. We are of the opinion that education currently needs to go digital in order to reduce cost, improve the management quality, enhance the delivery, and also in a bid to increase the access to quality education most especially for the out-of-school children and unlettered adults (and in the same vein create jobs).

Pupilate is a tool that aids critical education sector stakeholders improve their productivity, enhance access to quality education delivery to students, enhance better management and increased revenue generation, and ultimately create job opportunities – improving quality of life and education in particular.
Which year was the market introduction of the solution you apply with?
The solution was finally launched in September 2020 after series of market test.
