talent-city-in-alaro-city

There are currently 5 unicorns in Nigeria out of the 10 in Africa. Andela, Flutterwave and Opay in the last 10 years have joined Jumia and Interswitch as companies valued at $1billion dollars and above. Recently Fluterwave was valued at over a whopping $3billion+!

There is one thing similar about two of the most recent unicorns in the past 5 years - they are backed by the same Venture Capital fund and the same co-founder; Future Africa and Iyin Aboyeji respectively.

After helping build two unicorns and starting a VC fund, ⁦Iyin Aboyeji, co-founder of Andela and Flutterwave and Future Africa founding partner,⁩ wants to create charter cities in Africa.

iyin-aboyejiIyin Aboyeji

Iyin, the co-founder and brain behind two of Nigerian’s tech unicorns Andela (valued at over $1billion) and Flutterwave ( value at over $3billion) announced that his VC fund - Future Africa has just invested $13million in 72,000sqm of land in Alarocity, Freetrade zone Lagos. Could Talent city be the next Unicorn in Nigeria?

This talent city would be a one-stop residential estate for tech and IT talents in Lagos Nigeria and surrounding states.

Let me tell you how massive this is; Iyin, the brain behind this project - has driven over $4bn dollars in valuation from his previous investments in just Andela and Flutterwave alone.

He has a whole pool of Tech Venture Capitalists, founders and angel investors willing to back him and fund the realization of this project to the T.

This city in a city would attract both local and international tech talents and expats from around the world.

Since this city is in a free trade zone that has other petrochemical and chemical industries nearby; Talent city would also attract other oil and gas professionals, expats, foreigners and other high networth individuals.

Because fx controls and policies won’t apply here, these residents would be spending, transacting, and trading in dollars.

alaro-city-universal-one-low-rez

It is the goal of talent city to create an ecosystem that enables innovative startups to thrive. Infrastructure and amenities for a fully remote future would be all present at Talent city.

Because this is in a free zone , ease of remote company registration would see exisitng Startups and new ones springing up; have their residents located and living here because of freindly business policies.
