President Bola Tinubu’s government has launched TechAdvantage Nigeria, an online ecosystem facilitating connections between apprentices and business owners while aspiring entrepreneurs gain insights from seasoned experts.

The platform also hosts the TechAdvantage academy, offering training and empowerment opportunities.

 

Customers can access skilled individuals through the jobs platform, while traders and startups can broaden their reach via the online marketplace.

 

Tech enthusiasts can convene to exchange knowledge, collaborate, and fortify the tech ecosystem.

 

Minister of Science, Technology, and Innovation, Chief Uche Nnaji, announced the initiative during the launch event.

 

He also said: “The computer village model, long recognized as a hub of ingenuity and entrepreneurship, inspires this project. We have translated the best of this model, the spirit of collaboration, the drive to succeed, and the constant adaptation to technology into an online ecosystem accessible to all. The idea behind TechAdvantage Nigeria is to technologically empower individuals and promote a culture of collaboration that transcends tribe, religion, and politics.

 

“TechAdvantage Nigeria offers the space for interested Nigerians to take charge of their growth and empowerment. I therefore, urge all Nigerians, particularly our young ones, young professionals, and artisans, to explore the TechAdvantage online academy and equip themselves with the skills of tomorrow, seek opportunities through the TechAdvantage jobs platform, and build their careers in the tech sector, showcase their expertise and connect with potential customers in the TechAdvantage online marketplace, and join the online community and become part of a vibrant network of tech enthusiasts.”

 

Group Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and co-founder Sapphital, Amu Ogbeide, “So imagine I’m in a different location, and my phone stops working or my laptop crashes. I can go on the platform, and identify a person nearby who can just come and fix it. So we’re looking to scale across the country. Train people, empower them.”

 

 

He said one can sit at home and look for someone to mentor him, knowing how difficult it can be sometimes when the person is not there physically.

 

 

He said you can go on the platform watch the video, and follow him and I see everything he posts every day. So mentorship these days and apprenticeship has gone digital by following people and watching what they do, you can learn from them along the way in the tech ecosystem.
