NAILAB as a Core Pillar of my Success

Where it all began;

The first time I heard about Nailab was in 2018. A friend of mine sent me a link to apply for a program Nailab was offering, The Next Economy (TNE). My friend had previously gone through the program and benefited from it. The first thing I did was google Nailab to see what they do, but I was mostly interested to know who the founder was, the brains behind this wonderful innovative company that catalyzes innovation and mentors young entrepreneurs.

The risk;

I decided to apply for the program Nailab was offering. The only challenge was that I already had a full time job as a graphic designer. I was only 3 weeks old and I didn’t know how my employer would react. Would she even allow me to attend my mentorship sessions if I got accepted? After two weeks I received a call from Nailab that I had been shortlisted for an interview, I was given the date to go for the interview.

My first step into my career in photography;

A few weeks later I received a call from Nailab that I was among the people selected for the Programme. I took a risk and it paid off. I went through the program for 6 months for the first 3 months, I was coached on core life skills and the other 3 months on entrepreneurship.

Nailab is an accelerator that offers a “Launch out” program for entrepreneurs and “Launch in” program for those seeking employability.
