What We Have Been Up To At IGHUB
It’s been incredible the past few months. We have taken on quite a number of projects for organizations and continued on our business of impacting our community and building the future of the Tech ecosystem in South East, Nigeria.
Here’s a few of what we have been up to;
IGHUB KIDS CODE CAMP
During the Summer Holidays, IGHUB introduced over 35 young kids into the beautiful world of programming at a programme tagged ‘IGHUB KIDS CODE CAMP’. We were enthused by the creativity and excitement they displayed throughout. This has birthed a new program Kids Code Club which we have kicked off in a few schools.

THE IGHUB NETPRENEURS AND DEVELOPERS FELLOWSHIP
So, Partnerships for Initiatives in the Niger Delta (PIND) discovered after a survey; the high rate of unemployment and underemployment in the Niger Delta area of Nigeria and were just the right partner we could work with on providing 120 Youths the opportunity to be trained for free in 3 months. The training kicked off on 17th September 2018. These Out-of-school youth all within the ages of 16–26 are being trained in one of the following — Netpreneurship, Graphics Design, Front End Development, Back End Development and Mobile Development. These are in-demand skills that will set them on the path of being gainfully employed or even starting businesses of their own in no time.

STARTUPWEEKEND ABA PREPARATIONS
We cannot count the StartUpWeekend’s we have hosted in one hand. Startup Weekends are 54 hours where Tech Enthusiasts, Technical Professionals (Developers, Designers), Business Professionals (Marketers, Entrepreneurs) with an idea can come, find a team and in that weekend carry out market validation and even go right on to start up a venture.
Salesbay and The MyPaymart team which later started Touchabl came as a result of Startup Weekends and we can’t wait to see which is coming out of the next one.
