Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg is currently in Lagos Nigeria.
He visited Andela’s office in Lagos.
Mark Zuckerberg/Facebook invested $24 Million Dollars in Andela a few months ago. He needed to check on his investment lol.
He told them:
“You are all a part of something that’s really important and I thank you for that — it’s awesome to get a chance to meet you.”
“We are excited and honored to welcome Mark Zuckerberg to Lagos. His visit reinforces not only his support of Andela’s mission, but his belief that indeed the next generation of great technology leaders will come out of Lagos, Nigeria and cities across Africa. Andela has created a platform for passionate, driven software developers and engineers to break into the global tech ecosystem, but the barriers to entry are still very high. Mark’s visit demonstrates to all Nigerian developers and entrepreneurs that they’ve caught the attention of the tech world, and they are capable of succeeding on a truly global level.”
