Congratulations so far on the project. In particular, I am amazed by the diversity of the startups within your hub, in terms of the differrent problems they are solving. It will be great to read through your updated idea in the coming days especially with regards to the feedback you got from the local beneficiaries, and in terms of what the next immediate steps of the lab looks like.
In my ecoystem (Africa), one of the issues labs and incubators still struggle with is sustainability and scale. What are you envsioning for Five One Labs? Are there any interestimg models that you feel would work well? Best
Great idea foucusing on empowering local governments to be in a position to better address the needs of the locals in Nigeria. I was curious for you to share with the community what the measure of success would look like exactly for your project, and how you would envision measuring direct impact. As the beneficiary feeback comes to an end, we cannot wait to read through your updated idea including some feedback from the local communities and the user experience map.
Such a great idea. We are looking forward to the additional information that you would be providing. When reading through your idea, one thing that came to mind was more on the ease of use of the app. I was curios to understand if the people you are targeting have been expeosed to technology devices and also if the app needs to be in their native language. This reminded me of this platform: https://www.kujakuja.com by http://IDEO.org; a platform to help refugees provide realtime feedback on service delivery
