NATIONAL UNIVERSITY OF LESOTHO
The National University of Lesotho through the NUL Innovation Hub is incubating startups owned by graduates. The startup that I am representing is Superfoods and it produces and market sorghum products. The National University of Lesotho (NUL) is laying down a self-sustaining innovation and job-creation ecosystem that is meant to last. The primary aim of the incubation stage is to test the performance of a product, to test its market reception, and, where necessary, to go back to the labs and fix the flaws even as incubation proceeds. The incubation stage will be followed by the acceleration stage of the business to test the management of employees and business in general. The aim is to have all the products reach the final industrialisation stage.
