Earlier this year in Maitama, Abuja, Emerging Platforms Group launched the Ventures Platform hub, a full service tech innovation hub to incubate, mentor and support start-ups solving the most challenging problems on the African continent. Designed by architect Wole Oyebanjo of CoBuildit.com, the hub creatively makes use of shipping containers paired with a traditional block and mortar building.

Ventures Platform is billed to be a start-up launchpad, that offers incubation, co-working spaces, and everything start-ups need in the early stages. We have fused; architecture, design, and art to create a great campus that we believe will stimulate creativity and get people to create their best work.

The campus was carefully built to accommodate professionals, start-up entrepreneurs, tech enthusiasts and freelancers who all share common goals. Equipped with the latest in design and technology, the campus seeks to make work easy, with facilities including communal work spaces, a gym, residences for out of town enterprises, private meeting rooms and various office services to enhance creativity and efficiency.
