The Federal Government has activated the Nigeria Startup and Engagement Portal (NSP) for labelling.

ConsumerConnect reports the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), which announced this development Monday, April 14, 2024, noted the overall objective of the initiative is to empower the eligible participants for statutory incentives, resources and opportunities in the country’s digital ecosystem.

NITDA also stated Dr. ‘Bosun Tijani, Honourable Minister for Communications, Innovation and Digital Economy, had launched the Startup Support and Engagement Portal as part of the Nigeria Startup Act (NSA 2022).

The aim is to foster the growth of startups and technology talent in the Nigerian digital ecosystem, noted the agency.

NITDA, therefore, encouraged prospective participants to “join 12,948 startups, 912 VCs (Venture Capitals), 1,735 Angel Investors, and 925 Accelerators, Incubators & Hubs already registered” within the ecosystem.

Nigerian Startups are encouraged to register at https://www.startup.gov.ng and “become eligible for statutory incentives, resources and opportunities.”

On the other hand, if you have registered on the Nigeria Startup Portal, you are asked to check your e-mail for password reset and complete your profile to apply for a Startup Label or get verified (VCs, Angels, Accelerators, Incubators, and Hubs).

Register via www.startup.gov.ng to start labelling process, NITDA said.

The Information Technology (IT) sector regulatory agency further stated: “Your registration qualifies you to participate in forming the Startup Consultative Forum and potential incentives under the Nigeria Startup Act.”
