About Startup North-east

This project seeks to identify and support innovative and technology-focused startups whose activities can create solutions to the problems in north east Nigeria, and especially address gaps in areas of aid distribution and data management.
Successful participants will be supported to deploy their applications to increase the availability of solutions that will support community, government and donor initiatives in rebuilding the region.

Key areas of interest for your solution
Applications should focus on the following areas:

Poor Data Management

This blindsides the aid organisations from knowing the actual gaps in the north east, which mitigates the efforts of aid distribution

Misappropriation of relief materials and funds

Local leaders sometimes divert and sell these relief materials, are nepotistic and bring only their family members to benefit from the aid provided by development organizations.
Lack of insight
Non-consultation with local communities to determine actual need

Insecurity

Fewer organizations are willing to move outside the capital cities of the Northeastern states, to deliver aid to other areas. This poses a challenge for many organizations to find implementing partners and delivering programs outside of the city

Unqualified personnel

The lack of trained personnel in handling aid distribution

Extortion

Sex for cash, food items and non-food items with vulnerable women and girls in the IDP camps

Poor coordination and lack of good communication

There is poor coordination and lack of good communication among disaster management stakeholders

Poor data collection

Poor identification of households that require these relief services

Mishandling of equipment

Physical cards provided to IDPs for identification, sometimes get missing or is reprinted so many times to enable them collect the relief materials multiple times
