WHO WE ARE?
The ICT enterprise in Yaba has organically reached international recognition by fostering leading technology start-ups.
KITE@YABA is a platform to create an enabling environment that will aid the congregation of technology & innovative entrepreneurs by facilitating capital, aiding skilled talent and providing infrastructure and allied services.
The Lagos State Government (LASG) is sponsoring the project and it will be privately driven, with Ibile Holdings Limited – the State’s investment company, as the anchor.
LASG’s interest and support for the project is predictable having championed Lagos Smart City and Lagos Innovates Programmes for skills acquisition and employment generation.
