Two emails in one week? Not usually our style and no it's not a new thing to clog your inbox, but the updates have been coming in thick and fast and I thought to put them all in here before we get fully into the holiday mode.

Happy Christmas and Happy New Year in Advance!!! (We will try not to send another email this year, no promises though).

Startup Circles

We're launching a new program with Facebook in January called Startup Circles! Startup Circles from Facebook is a program that helps early-stage entrepreneurs build better products by connecting them with a local network of fellow startups and experts in business and product strategies and Facebook best practices.

The ideal startup is:

  • A team of at least two people that are building a solution that is technology-dependent (i.e the digital product is essential to the business).
  • The solution doesn't have to be launched, but they should have built an MVP at least. 
  • At least one of the founders should be technical i.e the core of the product building isn't outsourced
  • Finally, the team should have a Facebook Business Manager Account and ID for us to be able to track the program. This is easy enough to set up here

If you think are a good fit for this program, apply here.

Choose Startup Circle Kaduna while applying.

Code School Starts
Code School, our introductory classes to programming via web development, stars a new batch in the last week of January. We have both weekday classes (12pm - 3pm, Mondays and Wednesdays), and Weekend classes (Friday 3-6pm and Saturday 12-3pm) available, so if you're interested in joining that batch, please sign up here.

Python Classes
Our Introductory classes to Python - one of the most versatile programming languages in the world starts next month Whether you are interest in backend web development, Data Science, Machine Learning and AI or just want to hack some hardware together, Python is one common thread across those use cases. Sign up for our very first class which starts in the last week in January, here.

Colab for Kids

If your kids loved our summer camp, they'll love our new Colab for Kids Program, which is a project based learning program that happens all year round! Kids get introduced to the fundamentals of technology and are allowed to play around, and find their interests by building technical projects of their own choosing.

If you're interested, it costs just N10,000 per kid, per month and you can get more details by replying this email or talking to the guys at our front desk.
  • We are always looking to connect with Startups in and around Kaduna, so if you are working on something interesting, feel free to shoot us an email.
