Hi, my name is Asemota Izoduwa Precious, I currently manage the Edo State Innovation hub alongside a software and an ed-tech company called Cyan. With my vast experience in working with startups, I focus on ideas to product, finding product market fit, growth phase and fundraising for startups.
A bit of my background: I have an accounting background and went into data science and artificial intelligence in 2018.

I have experience with building chatbots and 2 certifications in “How to build World class products” and “How to build digital Products” from Product school. I am willing to support early-stage founders and growth-stage startups.

Mentorship motivation

  • I am looking for new investments
  • I like to learn about industries and new businesses
  • I want to give back to the startup ecosystem and entrepreneurs coming up
  • I want to make new connections for myself and/or the organization I represent
  • I want to scout for new opportunities in engaging as an advisor or for a board seat

In the ecosystem where i come from (Edo State, Nigeria), we have had challenges with the quality of startups with respect to the quality of ideas, finding models that can work and scale and most often finding product market fit. Working with these startups showed me the challenges and taught me the ways and strategies to help these founders refine their ideas, get started, gain access to funding and better themselves in the process because ultimately the thought processes of these founders get to determine their perception of what a problem is and the many approaches to solving it.
