New hub alert! XYZ hub in Lagos! ABC hub in Abuja.
Each day, a new hub in Nigeria, huh? It begs the question “Are these hubs making an impact?” or we are just rising with the bubble that tech is the other of the day, and creating a space for techies is the new call?
How impactful have these hubs been in contributing to the development of our country as a whole?
I want to iterate that I am neither for nor against the rise of Hubs in Nigeria, but I am particularly keen on knowing how impactful these hubs have been within the ecosystem.
Have more jobs been created? Have skills been improved? Have more ideas been brought from ideation to functional products?
Would you consider the rise of hubs as impactful? Let me know your thoughts.
