CRESTHUB is glad to bring to your notice and listening pleasure, The Hub Podcast.
When we relaunched in June last year, with the mission to tell the stories y of underreported startups and founders in Northern Nigeria and the rest of Nigeria and Africa.
After 8 months of consistent reportage, we have decided to add another content form to enable inclusion for our visually impaired audience and other people who prefer audio content.
I’m thrilled to present to you The Hub Podcast – a 15-30 minute audio podcast about tech in Northern Nigeria and the rest of the country and Africa.
The North Has A Story To Tell
Sadly, the media is often crowded with the “bad stories” that come out from the North. The reportage overlooks the growing tech ecosystem in the region.
We started CRESTHUB with the desire to focus on telling these underreported stories. Recently, former Twitter boss, Jack Dorsey appointed a Northern Nigeria-based venture capitalist, Abubakar Nur Khalil to serve in BTrust, a bitcoin fund.
Aside from Khalil, there are several entrepreneurs and innovators in the region who are building interesting solutions.
Starting from Jos, this podcast will bring an anatomy of the region, looking at the achievements, the challenges and the prospects. We will have conversations with entrepreneurs, investors, tech talents and government officials.
In summary, the Hub Podcast intends to:
• Tell the Northern story well. Bringing to your notice the happenings around tech, startups, SMEs, entrepreneurship and the digital culture in the North and also, by extension Africa.
• Serve as a platform towards giving clarity on the subject matter on tech issues, bringing to your knowledge facts, figures and also, serving as a bridge between tech bros and non-tech bros alike.
Why We’d Love You To Listen
As a part of our community, we’d love to have you be a part of it, gaining meaningful information and also, aiding in spreading the word out there for us.
We’re excited to have you on this journey with us as we explore the North, its technology and the core values CRESTHUB is notably known for.
