Nigeria In One Minute

Poor environment, power, funding hindering tech start-ups – Experts

For tech companies to succeed in Nigeria, there is need to tackle the issues surrounding an enabling environment, poor power supply and access to funds.

This was the view of experts who spoke to Daily Sun at the launch of the Nest Innovation Park in Yaba, Lagos, at the weekend.

At the event, co-founder of the hub, Oluwajoba Oloba, noted that education in Nigeria was not in tune with the realities of the day-to-day activities of modern society, adding that the hub revolves around education content that would help develop the technology ecosystem in the country.

Oloba noted that Africa’s workforce remains untapped and urged the Nigerian government to boost entrepreneurship, equip youths and make them ready for the market, to attract foreign exchange.
