SPPG Technology and Sustainabilty Project Cohort 2
We are team of advanced students of the School of Politics, Policy and Governance (SPPG).
The School of Politics, Policy and Governance's Certificate in Public Leadership and Policy (CPLP) course encompasses a curriculum aimed at providing a new generation of leaders in Nigeria with the requisite skills identified through research to be deficient in our current political landscape: Political Science, Ethics, Leadership, Economics, Sector Policies, Institution Building, and Quantitative Analysis. As part of the course, SPPG students embark on a Capstone Project, working in themed groups.
This team focused on Technology and Sustainability, as they examined the process followed by the Nigeria Startup Bill, one of many being introduced in countries across Africa, with a view to constructively evaluate its content, path to passage, and ultimately its implementation.
The team was motivated by the fact that, for the first time, there are more unicorn startups and innovations in developing economies than in developed climes. While most of that growth is fueled by India and China, the question of Nigeria’s place in this dynamic and how Nigeria can fully harness her technological potential must be carefully and strategically addressed by a broad base of interest groups.
