BENCEDI HUB is the first of its kind in the history of Benue State. It is made up of two major parts: the Tech Innovation Hub, to focus on raising tech entrepreneurs to leverage soft skills ranging from coding, software development, product design, graphics, animations, game design and development, digital marketing, cyber security, artificial intelligence, drones and robotics programming, etc and also the MSME’s skill acquisition workshops ranging from Fashion design, Hairdressing, Shoe Making, welding and fabrication, solar and security installations, agricultural technologies etc.. These will empower the youths and connect them to mentorship and funding opportunities that will enable them to create start-ups that will lead to job creation, thus reducing sole reliance on the government’s direct jobs, unemployment and crime while engaging the youths productively with fun.
