StartupSouth and Technology Companies has introduced TLNTPlus, a career acceleration and upskilling programme for fresh graduates and young professionals.

According to what was written, TLNTPlus is for people who want to develop a career in non-technical positions at startups and technology organizations.

Convener of StartupSouth, Uche Aniche, said: “Often times, founders in our network (and beyond) would reach out to ask for recommendations to fill certain non-developer roles in their business. We realised, through these requests, the importance of experienced non-technical talents in the success of Startups.

“Challenges of poaching from established organisations include highburn rate, which, ultimately, leads to failure.”

According to Aniche, TLNTPlus will concentrate on exceptional young professionals and provide them with access to top-tier corporate executives to help them advance their careers.

“We will also place them in companies offering them first-hand experience of what it takes to build, run or work in a fast growing business. At the end, they should be ready and equipped to build their business or get a head start in their career by getting hired in any of the well-funded and established businesses in our network,’’ he added.

The programme is by remote means and will target only 20 talents for this first cohort.

“The first cohort will focus on three areas namely, products (core product management, growth, digital marketing), business development (communication, sales, email marketing) and operations (project management, community management, offline and virtual event management, customer service, administration)

”If you’re a young professional or fresh graduate and looking for a way to accelerate your career with relevant experience in the Innovation ecosystem this programme is for you,’’ he added.
