Spread the love

A hub is a technology-oriented centre where people meet to work together to transform ideas to products and services using technology. This means that there has to be a well-defined process to manage the resources available to deliver the right result.

There are many hubs in Nigeria, however, the quality of their outputs is questionable. CCHub arguably stands out because of the collaboration and support from global tech companies. This has been able to streamline their delivery processes for creating start-ups. To keep at par with global benchmarks, there is a need to standardize the delivery model around the hubs to ensure international standard for products, services and start-ups created by this hubs. A very high percentage of the hubs are self-founded by personal hub managers, but sustainability and scalability is in doubt.

Facebook Hub is exactly what we have been waiting for. The mode of delivery of this initiative will have a quick and direct positive impact on the Hubs in Nigeria. Facebook intends to build the capacity of hubs in Nigeria and use them to deliver their objectives. The ripple effect on our technology space is huge.

More Nigerian youth will start building career in technology related fields. Seeing, they say is believing, when a young man sees how his mates transform their ideas into products, the tendency is that they will develop interest and their mind set starts tilting towards creativity.

Facebook hub capacity building program for the Nigerian Hubs will bridge the gap between the academic world and the industry. The curriculum to develop new set of technology-empowered youth will provide an upgrade path for the deficiencies in our educational system.

Here are some of my predictions on the impact Facebook Hub will make on Hubs in Nigeria:

  1. Computer science/students in higher institutions will be transformed to solution developers when hubs collaborate with educational institutions
  2. Hubs will produce more sustainable start-ups based on a robust curriculum
  3. Start-ups will produce localized solutions of international standard and high scalability.
  4. Anyone willing to build career in technology will have a clear path to follow.
  5. Time to market quality products and services will reduce.
  6. Nigerian economy will start generating more forex from technology solution export
  7. The Government will start creating good policies that supports the technology ecosystem
  8. More Primary and secondary school children will choose career in ICT and demonstrate their capabilities even at their young age.
