elev8 launches new academy in Nigeria

Fri, Mar 20, 2020

14 May 2020 

Today sees the launch of our latest academy, elev8 Nigeria. Based at The Wings Complex on Victoria Island, elev8 Nigeria is the latest in what will be a global network of academies providing leading IT training and executive programs to companies and individuals looking to become digital leaders. 

We opened our first academy in Costa Rica last summer and have been building on that success ever since, following great feedback from our clients and participants. 

Why elev8 chose Nigeria 

elev8 chose Nigeria to launch its second academy owing to its growing business sector and exciting growth potential. As the biggest economy in Africa with one of the largest populations of young people in the world, Nigeria is well-positioned to develop a strong digital economy, which would have a transformational impact on the country. 

“Here in Nigeria we will close the gap in technology education and cater to the growing number of technology companies and startups based here, as well as companies in other sectors looking to harness new technology,” said Maria Balbas, Global Head of elev8. 

As government and industry look to prepare Nigeria's labor force for this growth, we’re here to provide the unique learning experiences necessary to equip people with the most in-demand skills and experience in the most exciting new technologies including big data, machine learning, artificial intelligence, cloud, and cybersecurity.  

We look forward to welcoming you to elev8 soon.
