Grass-roots Technology Immersion Initiative
Led by the youth of the diaspora, project Build-a-Tech is a grass-roots technology immersion and incubation initiative that aims to bridge the gap between technology and the unique challenges facing young people in Nigeria. Nigeria, identified as a Next Eleven (N-11) country by Goldman Sachs chairman Jim O’Neil, has high potential of advancing to become among the world’s largest economies in the 21st century. This designation is a call to action for bold and creative ideas on how to enlist and propel today’s youth to solve modern problems using tomorrow’s technology.
