Inline with the vision of building a community of Creatives and Smart entrepreneurs in Anambra State, Startup Anambra (a Startup/Entrepreneurship ecosystem development project with a mission to train/educate, connect and attract investment to Startups and entrepreneurs in Anambra State as well as South-East, Nigeria) has partnered with The Devamplify Hub (Tech innovation community focused on providing support for individuals that are interested in tackling some of our biggest challenges in the southeastern part of Nigeria, Nigeria and Africa using innovative technology) to train Web Developers from their startup community.
Startup Anambra during the partnership process made payment up to the tune of 50% for ten (10) wanna-be Software Developers from the community who will join the next Devamplify Fullstack Web Development cohort.
Earlier this year, through their regular newsletter and blog post, the group stated that their major focus for the year 2019 is to close lots of investment and partnership deals on behalf of the community/members as well as see ways we can contribute to the success of their businesses/startups through funding, mentorship, and training.
Speaking with the Convener, Mr. Pascal Okeke, he stated that for the past two years, the group has reached out to some organizations to help train and sponsor young entrepreneurs, as well as help, put the group on the global map of startup communities and today, one of the organizations has responded, thus the scholarship.
He further urged Anambra youths and members of the Anambra Tech and Startup Community to embrace this opportunity to acquire technology skills which according to him is the only viable tool solving societal challenges as well as for socio-economic development.
Speaking also with our correspondent, Mr. Andrew Okwe (The Community Manager for Devamplify) stated that web development is one of the highest sort-after skills in recent years and thanked StartupAnambra for availing the opportunity and platform for young people/entrepreneurs from her community to excel. He further charged the recipients to embrace the opportunity and strive to be part of the innovation economy.
