Google Country Director, Mrs Juliet Ehimuan-Chiazor, say entrepreneurship is key to national development.
Ehimuan-Chiazor made the assertion at the inaugural Google Developers Launchpad Programme at the c0-creators hub in Lagos on Monday.
“The growth of entrepreneurship in Africa is critical to the survival of the continent.
“Therefore, Google is training `startups’ with the aim of creating opportunities for job seekers who are just entering the labour market.
“The Google’s inaugural Launchpad Startup boot camp in Nigeria is an avenue the youth and job seekers will utilise to empower themselves.
“Launchpad is Google’s mentorship-driven global startup programme which has a goal of driving real success for startups.
“The 5-day programme will focus on helping early-stage startups improve their business and product,” Ehimuan-Chiazor said.
