About us

PAADC is an annual STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) based competition, created by the University of Lagos Engineering Society (ULES) for undergraduates in the Nigerian varsity scene.

It was founded in 2017 with the aim of encouraging the creation of indigenous solutions to Nigerian challenges, through science and technology. Over the years, we have successfully helped incubate 12 startups and intend to do more.



PAADC aims to promote, celebrate, reward, and incubate innovative solutions across the African landscape. Centering on the undergraduate community, we aim to encourage goal getters and phenomenal pacesetters.



Our objective is to equip and empower undergraduate startups across the continent, setting the pace for disruptive innovation that would reshape our society.
