Software company, Vatebra Limited, recently launched its tech hub in Ajah, Lagos State. With sponsorship from Bank of Industry (BoI), the hub is focused on getting Nigeria towards the adoption of IT.
The hub aims to come up with a network of technology entrepreneurs by having them well placed for technological improvements in years to come.
Wisely launched in Ajah, a densely populated Lagos city, the Vatebra hopes to partake in the overall development of the technology ecosystem in Nigeria and Africa.
The hub provides co-work spaces and private offices at cheap rates, training for software developers, robotics and entrepreneurship. It plans to start its incubator and accelerator programs to offer business mentorship and financial packages to start-ups and aspiring business men and women with unique business ideas.
MD, Bank of Industry (BoI), who goes by the name, Olukayode Pitan said, “We believe that this hub will give start-ups a place to harness opportunities in the Nigerian and generate income from their skills rather than engage in fraudulent activities.”
Mr Kayode further revealed that his company is aware of the fact that business minds are searching for offices but are unable to pay for the buildings that are available. His words, “The Bank of Industry is giving them a platform to set-up offices, grow their businesses and add to Nigerian GDP. This initiative is a Corporate Social Responsibility of the Bank of Industry.”
Vatebra technology hub wants to have their say in the tech ecosystem in Naija by being at the fore front of the adoption of digital tech, via digital capacity development, business training and tech education in the country.
