Kaduna’s first innovation hub and co-working space, CoLab opened its doors on the 4th October, 2016. The institution aims to provide an enabling environment for entrepreneurs and innovators in the Northern part of Nigeria.
“The purpose of Colab’s creation is to create an environment that allows your natural curiosity foster learning, and inspire creativity and innovation.” – Sanusi Ismaila, Founder of CoLab
