Nigeria’s vibrant developers and entrepreneurial ecosystem attracted Mark Zuckerberg to Lagos.
Early Last week at Landmark Event Centre, Victoria Island, Mark had his signature town hall meeting with developers and entrepreneurs working out of Lagos.
Mark in his opening remarks pointed out that in Lagos, and across the continent, things are changing really quickly. The country is shifting from a resource based economy to an entrepreneurial and knowledge based economy and the tech ecosystem is leading that change. Nigeria is shaping the whole continent and influencing how things are going to work around the world for the next generation.
In the Q&A session at the town hall meeting, Mark shared his journey, tips for Nigerian developers and entrepreneurs and his love for Nigerian meals.
The event which was initially tagged a Facebook developers meeting was later announced by Mark to be a town hall meeting with developers and entrepreneurs working out of Lagos.
