In its seventh year, the Nigeria Innovation Summit brings together stakeholders from many economic sectors of the country to discuss the potential for technology, innovation, and entrepreneurial growth in Nigeria.

The Nigeria Innovation Summit (NIS) has held previous iterations over the course of the last seven years, drawing over 6,000 delegates, 140 speakers and panellists, 60 tertiary institutions and research centres, 27 government ministries and agencies, delegates from 30 states of the federation, over 55 sponsors and partners, 30 countries in attendance, over 70 recipients of innovation awards and a ton of media attention.

Through the utilization of cutting-edge technology, emerging trends, R&D (Research & Development), commercialization, entrepreneurship, and investments as the primary drivers of an innovation ecosystem, NIS supports Nigeria’s embrace of innovation and progress toward digital transformation. This forum raises awareness of Nigeria’s need for open innovation, and urges the country to use innovation to boost its competitiveness in the international market.

InnovationHub Africa, Emerging Media Nigeria,  & Resources Limited, and Emerging Media and Advertising Services, New York are the organizations behind the Nigeria Innovation Summit. To link Nigerian companies and innovators to international innovation ecosystems, we collaborate with the top innovation providers from academia, business, and government throughout the world.

The Keynote Presentations, Panel Discussions, Startup Presentations, NiX Talks (Expert Insights On Emerging Technologies), Innovation Showcases, and Innovation Tours are the main highlights of the Nigeria Innovation Summit.

Another component of the Summit is the Nigeria Innovation Awards, which honours and promotes States, Ministries, Businesses, Organizations, Institutions, Startups, and Innovators who have embraced innovation to advance Nigeria.


Only eight organizations and individuals stood out among the hundreds of nominees for the Nigerian Innovation Awards 2022 as deserving winners this year, given their impressive track records of creatively resolving issues, quantifiable effects on maintaining the sustainability of the Nigerian innovation landscape, and commitment to using innovation to advance Nigeria through their works.
