“Itanna means to ignite”

Itanna is an impact initiative that invests in disruptive tech-enabled businesses in Africa providing mentorship, facilitated networking and growth capital through its accelerator programme. Located at the Enterprise Factory in Lagos, Nigeria, it is place (physically and conceptually), where Africa's top talent will bring their ideas, vision, expertise and resources to create a new wave of trailblazing businesses that stimulate economic growth across the continent. It is a place we will do business. It is a place we will build businesses. It is a place where we will IGNITE.


Finding Africa’s next Unicorn

We see the potential of the continent and realise the need to continually disrupt the industries we operate in. Our mission is to help build the next generation of inspired Nigerian and African entrepreneurs. We would love you to join us.
