Start up Connect is an opportunity for Nigerian companies, creating technology solutions for the next generation African market, to partner with Union Bank for rapid growth.

The Bank’s involvement in this initiative stems from its commitment to being a leader in innovation and creating a lasting impact in the society especially as it marks its 100th anniversary this year with the theme ‘Celebrate, Impact, Lead’.


Start ups with functioning technology-driven businesses that have a tested business model and an existing customer base are invited to apply for the program. Shortlisted start-ups will be invited to present their ideas at a pitch event in September.


Through Start up Connect, creative talents and smart businesses can access the bank’s 350 sales/service centers and over 3.7 million customers spread across Nigeria to scale their businesses.


The Start up Connect program will be delivered in three phases: Select, Develop/Accelerate and Deploy/Invest. Selected start-ups will work with CcHub and Union Bank for a 13 week period to deploy and scale their business solutions.
