In an effort to increase technology office space in Africa, Google opened the first Developer Space in Lagos, Nigeria. The opening of this office is the culmination of a project called Launchpad Accelerator Africa, which started in 2017.
The Developer Space aims to support start-up companies and programmers in Africa. Through this office, the African technology community can make use of some resources from Google to carry out their projects.
Additionally, the space will also serve to organize events and gatherings between entrepreneurs, programmers or potential investors. Therefore, the city of Lagos is now more relevant in the field of technologies.
Developer Space Office will be an open space for the community
According to the director of Google in Nigeria, Juliet Ehimuan, this investment will help to develop and evolve technology in Africa. Ehimuan says that the African territory is full of talented human resources who need an adequate platform to grow.
The person responsible for the Launchpad Accelerator program, Onajite Emerho, says that there is already a range of activities planned for the new space. These include normal workspace and training projects like programmers’ marathons and programming groups.
The space will be open to all individuals who need to use it, in the digital and technological context. It goes without saying that the Developer Space office will be extremely useful for African citizens or start-ups who need a variety of resources.
Emerging countries like Nigeria generally need this kind of investment to expand their capabilities. The opening of Developer Space is one of the first steps in this direction.
