The Cascador 2020 program is open to applications from entrepreneurs who are willing to take their business to the next level. So, if you are willing to scale your business, this opportunity is for you.

The mission is to help mid-stage entrepreneurs grow their businesses and their interpersonal skills by working with successful American and Nigerian entrepreneurs. In this 2020 edition, Cascador is planning for an in-person program if it can be done safely. If that is not possible, then the program will be virtual and will hold on November 9 – 13 in Lagos.
