HACK-4-AGRICULTURE with Synergos

In bottom-up policy brainstorming sessions held in Nigeria’s economic and political capitals, Nigerian innovators identified education reform, broadband infrastructure, investor incentives and more as critical opportunities for the Government to accelerate startups, job creation and innovation-led economic growth in Africa’s most populous nation.

Nigeria’s Policy Hackathon was organized by Civic Innovation Lab, i4Policy, and Impact Hub Lagos, with support from “Make-IT in Africa”, a project of the German Development Cooperation. More than 100 people participated in the Policy Hackathons across two cities and over 40 policy proposals emerged from the brainstorms.
