The Omniverse (https://TheOmniverse.africa/), a dynamic convergence platform and summit for the brightest minds across African innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship is launching with its inaugural Summit in Lagos, Nigeria.
The platform is co-created with the Innovation Support Network (ISN) as ecosystem partners ISN is a national network of 180 innovation hubs, incubators, accelerators and coworking spaces across Nigeria. The Omniverse is supported by the Digital Transformation Center Nigeria, DTC Nigeria is jointly funded by the European Union (EU) and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.
The Omniverse Summit will feature four (4) days of meaningful programming focused on actionable outcomes at Landmark Centre Lagos from February 27 – March 1, 2024. The summit is structured around overarching themes of narrative, innovation, collaboration, and monetization. Each day of The Summit will be devoted to a core but connected theme, allowing The Omniverse Summit to delve into its multiple dimensions.
The Narrative Day (Day one) will explore narratives about Africa and Africans that shape our self-perception, global image and examine its impact on our economies, societies, and geopolitics but more importantly, how to rebuild, reframe and reclaim these narratives towards our common future in the light of presenting our markets and attracting investment.
The Innovation Day (Day two) will explore layers of innovation beyond technology while highlighting innovative pioneers who are revolutionizing their fields to help participants understand the strategies for nurturing and inspiring innovation at all levels despite the challenges.
The Collaboration Day (Day three) will dissect the DNA of successful collaborations by analyzing the mechanics of productive partnerships, purposeful alliances, and foster effective collaborations while aiming to help set up partnership deals and conversations.
The Monetization Day (Grand Finale) will unpack the science of making money, exploring effective strategies and approaches for building resilient, profitable careers and businesses
The summit beyond our main stage will happen across 4 stages/rooms: Development Room (for development partners to provide information and guidance to prospective implementation partners looking for project funding); the Deal Room (for potential collaborators to meet, negotiate, and potentially close deals. Lawyers, business analysts and other resources will be stationed in the room to provide guidance and support); Sage’s Lounge (for intimate conversations with icons. A rotating roster of visionaries, mavens, and originators in tech, business, government, development, and creative industries will offer wisdom and advice based on their long, storied careers); and the Career Center (where participants can find expert advice on career advancement, industry transitions, and job opportunities)
