This is an era of knowledge –based economy; the Internet has become a veritable tool for business, communication and social empowerment. Nigerians when it comes to the Internet are known as people that use the Internet for fraudulent purposes, hence the name Nigerian scam.
This has tarnished the image of the country in no small measure. One of the ways to reduce the incidence of cyber crime and re-brand our country is by empowering Nigerians with the latest opportunities that the Internet provides in areas of business, education, governance, communication, medicine, and agriculture. Nigeria Internet World Conference and Exhibition (NICE) has come to address these issues. Nigeria Internet World Conference and Exhibition (NICE) is an annual event, which provides education, empowerment, networking, business opportunities for Nigerians. It is a gathering of Internet based businesses, service providers, e-Commerce providers and experts that are involved in online marketing, e-commerce technology, web technology and development, content development and management.
The idea is to create a platform where Nigerians will be educated and empowered with the latest development in the world of Internet. This event is meant to spark up the Internet for Business (I4B) revolution in Nigeria and encourage entrepreneurship.
The mode of achievement of the main essence of the conference is through seminars, exhibitions and networking.
The seminar will involve speakers who are experts in relevant Internet related fields. Topics will be drawn from the focus and theme of the event.
Nkem Uwaje, MD Future Software Resources Ltd. was invited to speak at this event. She chose the topic "The Youth & The Internet - Opportunities & Possibilities". To download her presentation in PDF format, please click here.
