The AkureTechHub is intensifying efforts to ensure that the ecosystem is a beehive of technological innovations and SMEs solutions that can affect the socio-economic development in Nigeria.
In an effort to boost the community interaction and networking, the hub opened its doors for a one-day event—Open House—for people in Akure and environs to experience the space and opportunities that can come from collaboration in the ecosystem.
It was a whole day of mentorship, games, networking, free use of the facility (workspace, internet etc) and conversations on how to be solution driven innovators. The event was not just for software developers or people in the tech space but for creatives, small business owners, students etc.
115 Garage Global Talent Lead, Kitan David charged members of the community to leverage all the opportunities from the workspace to add more value to themselves in their chosen area of expertise. He explained that business success is not a function of place, as you can start from you are and expand to where you want to be.
In the same vein, the Executive Director of Akure Tech Hub, Mr Abraham Akpan emphasised that the plan is to build and support communities—tech, business and creatives—to put Akure and Ondo State on the global map.
