Delivery Science is honoured partner with the Lagos State government via the Lagos State Employment Trust Fund.
Tuesday 30th of August 2016, will remain etched in most memories for a long time. And like a time capsule, capturing and preserving this day should be important for most, not only the tech inclined in the society. Facebook CEO and Founder, Mark Zuckerberg made a surprise visit to Lagos. His agenda was simple: learn about the technology landscape in Nigeria and meet the leaders in tech.
A select few in the tech scene were invited to speak with Mr. Zuckerberg in a private session, which included the likes of Mark Essien of Hotels.ng and Chika Ofili Co-Founder Delivery Science.
After the session, Chuka was interviewed and quoted by BBC. Here’s the excerpt:
“Having someone of that caliber coming into Africa and wanting to see the technology cluster, I think is a good one, because it then shows that the world is beginning to recognize talent in Africa. Say this 5 years ago and people will tell you ‘oh, they want to take talent out of Africa’ but now, it’s a different case. It establishes that we are on the map now and that’s a good thing.” Link here.
Delivery Science is as enthused as other technology companies in Nigeria that an icon like Mark will come to Africa and not go for a safari, but instead visit a business hub that is shaping to become a major player in the global technology market in the near future.
Speaking to Nigeria CommunicationsWeek, Lanre Oyedotun and Chuka Ofili, Delivery Science co-founders, said that the concept was borne from perennial bottlenecks faced by these companies in the management of the delivery of goods and services.
