RCCG Nu Breed Digital BootCamp 2016 » 23rd – 29th October

Digital BootCamp is a workshop designed to equip the upcoming generation of youths (millennials) with the tools and techniques required to make them a major stakeholder in the emerging virtual world. As the world advances and gradually diffuses into a virtually real word, teenagers need to be informed about this reality, carried along and trained to become major stakeholders in the making of the emerging virtual world. It is our candid belief that teenagers in this part of the world should not just be consumers, but also makers and drivers of the trend. In this wise, the workshop will therefore engage intensive training in the dynamics of digitalization which will be interactive in orientation.

Receiving the internet entrepreneur in the State House, President Buhari said the various meetings held with Nigerian youths since his arrival were most timely as the country was already exploring opportunities to spur development through entrepreneurship.

 

“Nigeria has always been identified as a country with great potentials for growth, especially with our youthful population, but now we are moving beyond the potentials to reality.

“I am impressed by your simplicity in sharing your knowledge and wealth with those with less income,’’ the President said.

 

President Buhari noted that the simplicity and magnanimity of the entrepreneur, who is among the world’s richest men, had also challenged the culture of lavish wealth display and impulsive spending that had become peculiar to Nigerians. Read more

Mark Zuckerberg –

Last stop of my trip: I’m in Abuja to meet Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

We all met with entrepreneurs as part of Demo Day, an initiative for the Nigerian government to fund entrepreneurs with ideas for improving the country. We heard from engineers who are finding ways to reward people for recycling, designing ways to pick up trash easier, and using shuttles to improve commutes in Lagos.

This has been an inspiring trip. The energy and entrepreneurship in Nigeria and Kenya is amazing. I can’t wait to come back again soon!

Obi Ejimofo, Managing Director of real-estate marketplace Lamudi.com.ng, opined that the only way to build trust is through consistency. The challenge is to continue to innovate.  “At Lamudi we are constantly evaluating ourselves to improve the quality of our agents, our response time, customer feedback and so on. As a result we came up with Dial4Home, a hotline which enables people speak directly to an operator who will guide them through their property search and more recently the mortgage calculator which calculates the mortgage cost on each property for sale on the Lamudi platform.” Read more

INTERVIEW: There are endless opportunities in the web-hosting industry – Ahmad Mukoshy (@mukoshy)

Good day people!

As a follow-up to my interview with Ahmad Mukoshy in 2009, I had another conversation with him recently, bothering on the latest development in his company – Gigalayer.

Enjoy!

 

Ahmad MukoshyIn 2009, you told us that timely insufficient internet connection was a big challenge. Have you been able to solve this challenge?

Yes, internet is now readily available and even on high-speed with HSDPA+ in town and likes of it across the nation. The telecoms have delivered 3G network everywhere, however the next challenge now is affordability of it. The cost is just something else!

 

Recently, you changed your company name and brand from AimTech to GigaLayer? Can you explain why you take this big move?

Well there was a lot of back-and-forth before the change was effected. But the good thing is that Aimtech still remains and we basically changed our domain and branding. It is still the same company and same people except bigger and better.

The main cause of the change could be easy to remember and access without hassles. Then the feasibility of the name to grow world-wide. Prior to that, I tried all I could to get us aimtech.com, which was abortive, so I concluded on a switch.

I also consulted a number of my mentors prior to the switch, almost all of them were OK with GigaLayer and also the fact that the business name is only a small slice in the success pie, so we have to make it sell, that’s what matters the most.

Right now, we are continuously growing and improving our offering.
