Nigerian startup selected for Start-Up Chile accelerator


Nigerian e-health solution Curacel Health has been selected to take part in Start-Up Chile’s S Factory accelerator, aimed at supporting first-time female entrepreneurs.

Thirty startups from across the world have been selected to take part in the S Factory, which offers participants US$15,000 equity-free funding and a one-year working visa in Chile.

The 12-week latest programme begins in October 3, and will see Nigeria’s Curacel Health take part. The startup will also have the chance to apply to Start-Up Chile Seed, which offers US$30,000 in funding to companies with at least a validated prototype.

Curacel-Health is an electronic health information management system for clinics in developing countries. It is a web application that helps clinics transform their paper records into digital form, manage their records, appointments, patient communications, billing and reporting with an easy to use dashboard.

Start-Up Chile has selected African startups into its programmes in the past, with Nigerian startup Beavly, an online marketplace that connects people eager to learn new skills with small and medium sized businesses willing to provide workplace training for a fee, accepted onto an accelerator programme earlier this year.
