Who says we don’t have cutting edge ideas and innovation in Nigeria? Well, the guys at the Co-Creation Hub in Yaba, Lagos have provided a platform for young people to work.

Battabox stopped by at the CC-Hub to find out what goes on there and they had this to say “At this colourful tech hub, young Nigerians are given power, fast internet and the tools to collaborate all for a membership fee – from as little as 30,000Naira ($200) a month to 1,000,000 Naira ($6000) a year for corporate organisations. Co-Creation describes it’s mission as “accelerating the application of social capital and technology for economic prosperity in Nigeria” – and in turn has technology collaborations, competitions and camps to foster and encourage young start-ups.Some of their projects launched include Efiko (you can find it here: http://www.efiko.com.ng/ ) which is a mobile self-help tool for students; Tiket Mobile (found here: http://www.tiketmobile.com/ ) which helps you get information and buy bus tickets for across Lagos; or Budgit – a website that tries to simplify the complex Nigerian budget ( found here: http://www.yourbudgit.com/ )

      The presenter has limited knowledge of robotics and technology as a whole. Its always good to research a topic b4 you go on tv/ internet.

      that English accent is horrible isn’t meant for hosting also the need to invest in a better camera

    • Tunmi April 17, 2013 at 3:22 AM

      The accent is fine, the English is just painful.

      Battabox media is created by Nigerians FOR the average Nigerian. If you see their other videos, you’ll understand what I mean. All you “holier than thou” BN readers need to calm down. I understood her perfectly. If you don’t like it try CNN and its related programmes such as Inside Africa to satisfy your “Queens English” craving on reports about what’s going on inside your country.
