It has been a great week with the arrival of myself founder of Startup Africa and Project co-manager the PrinterNet Cafe Nigeria (Okezie Nnamdi Ogbonna) and resource partner in Book production and leatherworks at Abia State University, Uturu- Centre for Entrepreneurial Studies (Chukwuma Uduma) where the PrinterNet Cafe and Startup Africa Mentoring and Incubation Hub was set up on Wednesday July 4, 2018.
I installed 3 computers with WiFi internet access to provide a PrinterNet node for the students at Abia State University, Uturu Eastern Nigeria. In just three days, the hub has been a beehive of activities as up to 20 students visited the hub to signify interest to join our incubation project as mentees.
