Few days ago, I went on tour of the newly launched startup incubation and co-working space center in Ibadan, Ecco Hub. Though, my claimed that Ecco Hub was the first incubation and co-working space in Ibadan was totally wrong, and also have received several mix-reaction from tech nerds in the city.
As part of my apologies to the tech nerds in the city, have complied a list of incubation and co-working space center in the ancient city of Ibadan.
Before going to the compilation list lets first discussed what Incubation and co-working center means : Co-working is a style of work that involves a shared working environment, often an office, and independent activity.
Unlike in a typical office environment, those coworking are usually not employed by the same organization, while incubation center is an environment that helps new and startup companies to develop by providing services such as management training or office space. ( Credit : Wiki Pedia)
