Start-IT! Pro Bono Programme

Start-IT! Pro Bono Programme

The Start-IT! Pro Bono Programme caters to startups and not-for-profits in the technology industry and creative sector in financial need.

We provide legal assistance to startups and non-profits on projects, transactions and other matters. Under the Programme, we would be able to advise on the structure of the business, regulations applicable to the business and their potential impact, the product/service model as well as questions on building, protecting and enforcing IP. We would also be able to assist with drafting agreements and other documents.


The Programme is designed for startups and non-profits that cannot reasonably afford to pay for legal advice. In general, organisations with an annual turnover of ₦10,000,000 or more will not be accepted to the Programme.

Unless the organisation is a non-profit or a startup with a clear social impact, organisations accepted to the Programme must have been in business for 3 years or less.

Prior to accepting any organisation for the Programme, we will require supporting information and documents that demonstrate that they meet our eligibility criteria.
