Techtiary is Paradigm Initiative’s response to the huge need for entrepreneurship among tech-savvy Nigerian youth based on the high rate of unemployment in Nigeria and the urgent need for skilled graduates.
The platform fills an existing gap and also provides a place where budding Nigerian technopreneurs in tertiary institutions can showcase their work, connect with resources, add value to the market and inspire innovation while building sustainable businesses that they will run after graduation.
The lack of technical expertise among Nigerian graduates, especially those who have had the chance to study ICT/Computer Science/Engineering is a result of many gaps, including the unfortunate Cram-Pass-Forget cycle that students engage in until they are faced with the reality of post-university life, especially in their final year.
The Techtiary Club is a platform of opportunities that seeks to close this identified gap and prepare tech-savvy students who are ready to unlock opportunities that will be useful for building careers or businesses from school.
Through this platform, students can make the best use of their knowledge by actively engaging one another in various projects and exposing themselves to a world of unlimited opportunities. The Techtiary Club is for students, strictly run and handled by students who have an interest in technology, and hope to become entrepreneurs by developing their ideas into marketable products even before they graduate from school.
