Their first hub in Ogba, Lagos would be launched by December 2017.
The workshop was an informal gathering of Virtual Reality enthusiast to connect, discuss and engage on the state of Virtual Reality and how it is changing the world. Participant learned that Virtual Reality is now useful in Transportation, for example, someone in Taiwan can experience what it feels like to be in a public vehicle in Nigeria, plus movies are now made using virtual reality.
The VR workshop gained momentum when participants began to try out the VR headset and test a couple of apps before sharing their opinions on how to harness the solutions that virtual reality is providing to solve real life challenges
During the second session of the workshop participants were trained on crowdfunding to raise funds for their start-up and they all signed up on indiegogo in order to make the session very practical.
It was a unique atmosphere of VR enthusiasts with different reasons for attending, as the event ended with a networking session.
Earlier in the week we hosted the German Members of Parliament, Chamber of Commerce (AHK) and German Consular to discuss ways to increase engagement between the Nigerian and German business community.
