CoLab‘s major goal as an innovation hub, is stated as to create a thriving technology ecosystem, in Kaduna first, and also the rest of Northern Nigeria, and since they opened their doors a few months ago, from their free code school, to collaboration with Ventures Platform and even the discussions at their meet up, there hasn’t been any miscommunication about their intent.
In this light, CoLab is hosting Startup Arewa’s “Digital Media Tools for SMEs” event on the 18th of February, 2017. Startup Arewa is a Tech Startup and Innovation Meet up tour powered by Emerge Tech Africa and Network of Incubators & Innovators in Nigeria (NINE), designed to organize capacity development boot camp sessions in different cities of the Northern part of the country to further boost the innovation capacity potentials of Technology Enthusiasts, Innovators and Startups.
According to the press release made available to us, the goal of the one-day event is to “equip participants with the digital skills to compete and succeed in the modern economy and also introduce them to relevant digital media tools.”
The event, which starts at 9am is free.
So if you are in Kaduna, we’ll advise that you save the date.
CoLab is Kaduna’s first Innovation Hub and Co-Working Space. It’s building an ecosystem comprising of a collaborative community of startups, innovators, creatives and entrepreneurs.
