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.

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!

INTERVIEW: We offer SMEs a reliable and affordable web presence – Oluniyi David Ajao @niyyie, CEO Web4Africa

As a follow-up to our 2009 interview with Oluniyi David Ajao, the brain behind Web4Africa and Mobile Africa, he talked to us recently on the new developments in the company.

Enjoy!

 

In 2009, you told us that affordable online payment system was a big challenge. Have you been able to solve this challenge?

pay_with_interswitch_verveOLUNIYI: The banks in our part of the world have been more innovative in the years since 2009 and now offer online payment platforms that support local cards and payment schemes. This has made buying our services easier for our customers.


• Recently, you acquired some web-hosting companies. Can you shed more lights on this and the reasons why you acquired them?

OLUNIYI: We acquired Nairahost in 2010, Alireta in 2011 and 1-877namebid.com (an American domain registrar) in 2013. The reasons for acquiring each of them varied but the final motivation was to grow our client base and offer our web services to more people.
• Web4Africa just gained accreditation for .FM, .mobi, .asia, .me, .tv, .cc domains. How does this improve your sales and credibility in the web-hosting sector?
web4africa webhost2OLUNIYI:  Web4Africa has ICANN Accreditation and that empowers us to be certified for generic domains like .mobi, .asia etc. Domain registration is a very important aspect of our business and ICANN Accreditation is the height of credibility for any domain registrar considering the very high standards demanded by ICANN.
Being ICANN Accredited also means we can deal directly with the domain registries, and saves costs in the long term, as our domain registrations volume increases. We hope to pass the cost savings by offering lower domain prices to our customers very soon.
• How many domains do you have on your web server at the moment? Read more
