Paul Graham, the Co-founder of Y Combinator asserts that “there cannot be solid technology ecosystem without research-driven
universities” (emphasis mine).

 

MTN NG raised the bar in driving for high quality research
in Nigerian universities with its PhD-oriented Academic Research and
Development Innovation (ARDIC).

 

Six (6) winners emerged and they will be supported to
translate their academic research into business ideas and social propositions
working with the global incubation form,
Seedstar/Seedspace.

initiatives.
