Hello Buddy..!
Welcome to Accelerate

Innovation, Tech Entrepreneurship, community building, student development

In February 2004, in a dorm room at Harvard University Mark Zuckerberg, launched a website that is currently worth over $600+ Billion, now that is the part of the narrative that is popular. It is my belief that Mark had his environment as an added advantage to further foster the growth and rapid expansion of Facebook, and I must say that in Rivers State University there are Mark Zuckerberg’s and Bill Gate’s who are yet to be seen simply because the needed environment that will encourage their growth has not been created. The dream of the Accelerate hub is to create that enabling environment and encourage innovation even in our school ecosystem, not just leaving students to follow the conventional methodology of “graduate first, think later”. With the establishment of the accelerate hub, student tech startups would finally get a platform to easily work, innovate, collaborate and synergize with other tech startups and other experts outside their reach to motivate, inspired, and tutor them.
