In a strategic move to expand the impact of its Digital Explorers program, OSMOS, a leader in digital skills development, embarked on a pivotal week-long mission in Kenya and Nigeria. Building on the success of ESTDEV’s earlier visit to Estonia, OSMOS aimed to introduce and advance the transformative Digital Explorers initiative.
Discussions in Kenya revealed a compelling need for specialized training tailored to young IT specialists, echoing the challenges overcome in Nigeria during Digital Explorers I. OSMOS observed an opportune moment for upskilling programs, aligning with Kenya’s focus on creating abundant opportunities for emerging tech professionals.
Simultaneously, Team OSMOS returned to Nigeria, engaging in high-level meetings with government representatives and tech influencers. The dialogue revolved around the alignment of Digital Explorers with Nigeria’s ambitious plans to create one million new jobs in the ICT sector. Strategic dialogues with key entities like DSNai – Data Science Nigeria, TechCabal, Tech4Dev, and Ventures Platform Fund explored collaboration possibilities.
Company visits unveiled insights into talent acquisition strategies, with tech firms expressing enthusiasm to explore matching opportunities for trainees based on both skill and motivation.
