The Telecommunication and Technology Sustainability Working Group is set to ignite a spark of innovation with their latest initiative, the ‘Innovation Makers Challenge.’ This exciting program is geared towards nurturing young talents within Nigeria’s vibrant technology and telecommunications sectors.
The initiative promises a multifaceted approach, encompassing a talent discovery competition, an immersive boot camp, and a grand finale in the form of a high-profile exhibition and conference. It’s an open call to all young innovators aged 18 to 35, inviting them to showcase their tech-driven ideas and products.
Bekeme Olowola, Lead Consultant of the TTSWG Secretariat, emphasized the wealth of untapped talent in Nigeria that is primed for support and development. He pointed out the need to shift the focus from celebrating ideas with minimal national impact to empowering youthful creativity within the technology landscape. The ‘Innovation Makers Challenge’ is a powerful step in that direction, poised to make a significant positive difference in the country’s tech sphere.
