In what appears to be the biggest news so far in Nigeria’s tech ecosystem, nHub, Northern Nigeria’s first and biggest tech hub, has announced it has raised an undisclosed amount of funds from a local angel investor to boost its outsourcing component.
Launched in 2015 by Daser David, nHub seeks to empower entrepreneurs on their journey to build great ideas out of little or nothing.
At nHub, startups at every stage of maturity are provided tools, resources and expertishey need to succeed. Startups are helped to scale their businesses, bring innovative services to the market and reach new customers through our connections.
Also, nHub offers a range of services such as consulting, training, mentorship and outsourcing. Its outsourcing component is in fact its lifeblood.
It has done projects for the Nigerian Military, government and private firms, and is currently servicing some other tech firms in the country. nHub is run with funds got from these projects.
It is little wonder this seed investment, which is nHub’s first ever external investment, will be used to boost the outsourcing component to enable it attract more projects. Its present crop of developers will be kept and more will be trained to join in.
The investor, who reached out to nHub’s founders after falling in love with the team, has an option of increasing the investment, which is in 8 figures and naira denominated, without taking more equity.
