One of Nigeria’s leading incubation, acceleration, and co-working space Co-creation Hub (CcHub) announced on Twitter it has appointed Damilola Teidi as the new Director of Incubation.
Teidi will relieve Tunji Elesho who has been serving in that post, at the same time also serving as the Managing Partner/Director of Growth Capital by CcHub.
Today is a great plus one news day at the Hub! We are uber glad to announce that Damilola Teidi (@damiteidi) is re-joining our team as Director of Incubation at #CcHUB.

Little history on Damilola Teidi
She previously served as the CEO of GoMyWay, a ride-sharing startup that was incubated at the CcHub but had an unfortunate run leading to its shut down in September last year. The startup was operational in less than two years and faced serious financial backing shortages.
GoMyWay shut down was particularly painful for CcHub not just because it was its incubator, but also because of the fact it bagged some reputable brands and personalities during its initial backing. GoMyWay had the backing of Sim Shagaya, the founder of Konga and Bill Paladino, a former Amazon and Naspers executive.
Damilola Teidi will be rejoining CcHub as a former incubatee, and also come with the first-hand experience of how the incubator works. She once served as a Business Analyst with the hub’s incubation team.
