Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has been touring technology hubs in Nigeria for the past five months to see the work that young IT entrepreneurs and developers have been doing. He visited companies like Andela, Paystack and Flutterwave during the tour.
Professor Osinbajo also held several interactive sessions with the Nigerian entertainment industry in Lagos in April.
Now he is currently on a tour of Hollywood and Silicon Valley to see how Nigerian tech companies and entertainment industry can collaborate with their US counterparts.
Start-ups from the innovation hub are in the Vice President’s delegation and they will pitch their ideas to their US counterparts during the trip.
Professor Osinbajo also took artistes and executives from Nollywood and the Nigerian music industry, who will hold meetings with their US counterparts to explore areas of collaboration.

Yesterday, we continued an interactive investment forum with institutions and individuals in Hollywood.
Creativity and talent abound in Nigeria and we are open for business. I met with reps from Universal studios, Warner Bros, 20th Century Fox, IMAX, Disney and a host of others.
I am glad to have been at this forum with our very own Nigerian stars and members of the Creative community.
