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/ )“
