Truppr has been accepted into FbStart’s Accelerate track


Truppr, a social fitness startup, has been accepted into the Accelerate Track of FbStart, a program from Facebook that helps mobile startups succeed.

The Accelerate Track, which is the most rigorous of all the tracks and has significantly fewer spaces available, is for developers/startups with a working mobile app in the Apple or Google Play app stores that ha s seen a sustained level of growth in their target markets.

Simply put, it is focused on helping apps that are more established, but are also fairly early in their lifecycle and can demonstrate that they have the potential for continued growth.

Together with some tech companies like Salesforce and MailChimp, Facebook will offer Truppr a package of free tools and services, worth up to US$80,000, designed to help grow its app.

Also, Truppr will be mentored by product managers, engineers, partnerships, and operations through events, office hours, webinars, email, and given access to the FbStart community.

Although most of the benefits expire in a year, Truppr will still be enrolled in the program and able to access mentorship and community opportunities.

Launched in 2014 by ‘Bosun Tijani, co-founder of Co-Creation Hub, Truppr is a social tool that helps you stay fit through various sporting events.

The Truppr app works by finding and booking sport venues, organizing fitness events/activities and finding fitness partners and teammates.

Also, the app gives users the ability organize sporting events, share events with friends and families on social channels, and experiences with teammates through comments and a ranking system.

Truppr, which is currently an InnCite Ltd (UK) service, is live in Nigeria and Nairobi, Kenya, where it launched last year.
