Three Nigerian Startups Selected For Techstars NYC Accelerator Program

Three Nigerian startups have been selected for the Techstars NYC accelerator program, receiving USD 20 K in equity funding and access to other support services. All of the selected startups each receive equity funding in return for a 6%, and access to learning opportunities, networking, and coaching.

The three Nigerian startups are Torche, which enables customers in Africa to make payments and other transactions with their fingerprint through biometric POS terminals; Vesti, a neobank that provides financial services, information, and community for the 272 million international migrants who do not have access to banking; and Voyance, a no-code data infrastructure platform that makes data teams more productive by automating complex data processes.
