Catalysing growth in Nigeria through regional innovation

The information communication technology sector in Nigeria has experienced rapid growth over the past 15 years, but growth has been uneven across the country, driven by disparities in available talent, understanding of innovation, infrastructure and government priorities. Innovation hubs can help catalyse regional innovation and job growth by serving as a platform for key actors to network and collaborate, and acting as a rallying point for the development of the innovation ecosystem. This report assesses the current innovation ecosystem across Nigeria and recommends design principles for innovation hubs to be developed regionally in the short and medium term.
