The vision for the hub is to provide a meeting point for learning, innovation, business creation, networking and incubation. The centre will be a hub for business-to-business interaction, knowledge exchange and access to apprenticeship and higher skills development, all of which will help to attract and retain talent in the state and its environs. The hub also has a design capability, enabling businesses to undertake research, develop prototypes and proofs of concept.
Our facility is used to inspire the region’s school children and those in further education to consider digital careers. Software development is one of the fastest growing and in-demand career, with the potential to yield huge business opportunities, particularly for small digital freelancers looking to develop innovative new products and services.
The hub aims to help drive the adoption of emerging technologies across the State’s corporates, public sector and academia. The Vatebra Tech-hub is aimed at furthering digital transformation in Nigeria by raising awareness about the impact of emerging technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Bots and Machine Learning (ML) to help drive economic growth and support the delivery of innovative and transparent services to citizens and customers alike.
In summary, the hub is an idea incubator and an environment that birth new businesses; it will be an integrated business and education facility. Entrepreneurs and business people will work alongside each other in a professional environment with facilities to enhance business and study.
