Venture Gardens Group Launches Vibranium Valley Tech Campus in Ikeja

Nigerian VC firm, Venture Garden Group, has launched its first tech hub in the country. Called Vibranium Valley, the hub is located in Ikeja, Lagos.

With a seven-year history in the Nigerian tech scene, Venture Garden Group has a pretty good understanding of how startups and startup innovation works.

According to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Bunmi Akinyemiju, with the launch of its world-class tech campus Vibranium Valley, Venture Garden Group takes the first step into its next chapter as the company works to grow an innovative and collaborative ecosystem that will transform Africa and the lives within it.

The new tech hub, called Vibranium Valley, was launched on June 22 with the Vice President, Yomi Osinbanjo as a special guest.

Apparently, the name of the hub was derived from the Hollywood blockbuster, Black Panther, and Silicon Valley. In Black Panther, Vibranium is a rare metal found largely in Wakanda while Silicon Valley is the home of global tech innovation. Thus, Wakanda science meets Silicon Valley. It’s quite an apt name for the hub.

However, Venture Gardens says Vibranium Valley is more than just a hub; it’s a tech campus. Vibranium Valley is “a tech campus with a vision of excellence. The character and quality of Silicon Valley ecosystem/cluster, in Africa.”

Interestingly, unlike most tech hubs in Lagos, Vibranium Valley is not located in Yaba. The hub is located at the once-renowned Concord Printing Press of Nigeria, at Ikeja. Vibranium Valley is a 2,600 square foot tech campus, and houses about 29 private office suites.

Of course, Venture Garden Group have been in the business of startup investments. They’ve played a key role in financing and supporting startups like Flutterwave, Riby Finance, Max.NG, SureBids, and SureRemit. So we can surely predict more support for startup innovations at Vibranium Valley.
