Zone Tech Park, touted as Nigeria’s largest tech hub with seed investment of about US$6.5 million (about N 2,359,500,000 billion) is ready for official launch as its promoters announced a formal media interaction and hub tour for next week, Wednesday August 1.
Zone Tech Park is located in Plot 9 Gbagada Industrial Scheme – Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial capital city of over 17 million people. A tour of the hub will allow a firsthand view of the products and services already under development.
Zone Tech Park is the brainchild of long-time Venture Capital (VC) investor Toro Orero and Bolaji Olagunju, one of Nigeria’s foremost management consultants, a serial entrepreneur and CEO of The Workforce Group, Nigeria’s leading HR company.
“Zone Tech Park is different to the other tech hubs in Nigeria in a number of ways including its experienced in-house engineering team of 20+ software developers and designers.
“Zone Tech is already home to three start-ups and has already turned five brilliant ideas into new products and services,” says the invitation-email to IT Edge News.
