Firm Launches Learning Platform To Support Creative Industry


A lifestyle and entertainment platform, Accelerate, recently launched a learning platform, The Phoenix Project, in a bid to further develop the creative potential of Nigeria’s youthful population.

According to the organisers, the platform, which is powered by Access Bank, will boost the creative industry and also empower individuals to succeed.

Speaking at the event, the Chief Executive Officer of Accelerate, Colette Otusheso, said the initiative would create more room for development in the creative industry, which contributes largely to the economy of the country.

“Our society is filled with a large pool of resourceful, creative and energetic young people seeking opportunities to advance and build rewarding careers borne out of passion. Through the Phoenix Project, we are committed to empowering the next generation of creatives by providing them with unique opportunities to realise their potential.”

Recounting the successes the company has recorded through its support for the creative industry, Otusheso stressed that the new project aims to support the government’s effort at addressing youth unemployment by leveraging the abundance of creative resources available to empower youths in the creative industry.

The project covers 12 knowledge areas including social media for business, entertainment law, graphic design, introduction to film, scriptwriting, business of vlogging, introduction to songwriting, introduction to film production, business of entertainment and the business of fashion.

Facilitators include Kemi ‘Lala’ Akindoju, Amaka Agbakoba, Uche Ugo, Enioluwa Adeoluwa, Dapo Osaji, Adetoke Oluwo, Paul Okeugo and Umeeta Rabiu.
