This is Mark Zuckerburg’s first trip to sub-Saharan Africa and his first stop is Lagos, Nigeria! He’ll be meeting with developers and entrepreneurs to learn about the startup ecosystem in Nigeria. “The energy here is amazing and I’m excited to learn as much as I can,” said Zuckerburg on arrival.
His first stop was the Co-creation Hub Nigeria (CcHUB) in Yaba. He talked to kids at a summer coding camp and entrepreneurs who come to CcHub to build and launch their apps. His next stop was Andela where he met the team that he and the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative invested $24 million earlier this summer.
Here’s a video of his Andela visit:
