A social enterprise and creative technology firm, Ehizua Hub, has unveiled an education and creative technology hub.
The Chief Executive Officer of the hub, Mr Matthias Ehizua, in a statement on Monday, said the platform was established to make online learning of creative technology programmes easily accessible in Nigeria and Africa through university admissions and scholarship, corporate accelerator programmes and global opportunities.
He was quoted to have said this during the unveiling of the hub in Lagos on Thursday.
“The university admission programme aims at facilitating universities admissions, scholarship and online programme delivery for short programmes, undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.
“The corporate accelerator programme and corporate venture capital aim are to provide a combination of education, investment, mentoring and networking for participants, providing support for start-ups or scaleup companies.
“The global opportunities programme prepares participants thoroughly with hands-on tools to help participants in securing a job by becoming an apprentice, intern, volunteer, employee or starting a business,” Ehizua said.
The edu-tech boss added that access to affordable quality education, fostering innovation and entrepreneurship was the best way to achieve inclusive and equal education with enhanced graduate outcomes in Africa and beyond.
“We have a skills-based training with the aim of making participants engage in in-demand industry-focused training that can immediately be applied in a job,” he said.
