Training professional analysts one bootcamp at a time to better the talent pool in Nigeria and across Africa.

“Nigeria has an abysmally low number of 85,000 technology experts out of its over 200 million population, with many migrating abroad regularly to seek greener pastures on yearly basis.” Click here to read the full report.
