Multi Space Chains in Kaduna See coworking companies with multiple locations in Kaduna
Perched in the Kaduna state in the northwest of Nigeria, Kaduna sits on the river of the same name. It's a major trade and transportation hub for the surrounding agricultural areas plus a transport hot spot if you want to run away from home. With a huge population of an estimated 1.3 million souls, the city is undergoing rapid urbanization. Home to a branch of the Nigerian Stock Exchange, Kaduna is serviced by 2 airports. One of Nigeria's 4 main oil refineries is located in the city and there is a mammoth racecourse where you will find the Ahmadu Yakubu Polo Club. The industrial enclave of Northern Nigeria and the Middle Belt, Kaduna manufactures products such as machinery, steel, petroleum, aluminum and textiles. Its textile industry is in a decline due to cheap Chinese imports and the city is famous for its pottery from the Nok culture. Founded in 1913 by the British, the city is now home to coworking venues catering to its inventive and creative locals who wish to solve the problems of their own country.
Nigerian people are predominantly English speaking and the country is becoming a hub for social businesses such as "Wecyclers". Nigeria has a huge market that is getting bigger every year and is the cultural epicentre for African youth through movies and online publications. Both Google and Facebook have opened up their own hubs and launched accelerator programs and the country is on track to draw more venture capital than its South African and East African counterparts. Nigeria is dubbed “Africa’s India” for its demographic stats. If today the population is “only” 173 million, making it the largest country in Africa, tomorrow, it should reach half a billion (2050) and likely a billion by the turn of next century.
With so much buzz happening in Nigeria, it's little wonder that cities such as Kaduna are seeing coworking spaces opening in their streets.
