Mark Zuckerberg motivates Nigerian entrepreneurs, developers during Andela Lagos visit

After his surprise visit to the Co-creation Hub Lagos (CcHub) yesterday, Facebook CEO and Founder, Mark Zuckerberg, embarked on a 2km walk to the Andela Amity Campus.

During a closed door meeting at Andela, Mark Zuckerberg met with Seni Sulyman, Director of Operations, and Nadayar Enegesi, Director of Learning & Development, to discuss the learning science powering Andela and the company’s success placing world-class African software developers with technology companies around the world.

Mark afterwards sat down with Andela developers Innocent Amadi, who runs the Facebook Lagos Developer Group, and Blessing Ebowe to learn about the highlights and challenges of being a software developer in Lagos.



Andela highlights an important reality of today’s ever-evolving workplace, and one at the core of Andela’s mission: physical location is no longer a requirement for building a world-class engineering team.
