Lagos Nigeria will host the 2023 edition of the ‘Nigeria’s Top 50 Digital Economy Enablers’ event on Tuesday, February 14, 2023.
Announcing the date, the organisers explained that the Top 50 honours corporate entities and individuals, who “embody the struggle, profound insights, stamina, infectious optimism and triumph in the extremely challenging but rewarding Nigeria’s digital economy sector. The Top 50 in itself has become an institutionalised agenda to identify the industry leaders in general and specific aspects of the market.”
Speaking further on this year’s edition, CEO, Knowhow Media, publishers of IT Edge News.Africa, Olusegun Oruame stated: “The 2023 edition (with a micro conference) is a coming together of industry players including TechEconomy, TechTV, ITPulse; and TechandBiz.com led by IT Edge News. Africa, to anchor an appraisal of market perforce, market (indigenous) actors and their response to local and global challenges across industry verticals.”
The event is a gathering of regulators and operators as the industry recognises its champions to discuss its future in a changing global economy. Confirmed speakers are National Commissioner/CEO of the Nigeria Data Protection Bureau (NDPB), Dr. Vincent Olatunji, who will be joining other regulators including the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), and other industry leaders to share insights on the sector’s opportunities and challenges.
According to the event Chairman, Dr. Sola Afolabi, this year worked through a multitude of identifiable metric as the Top 50 does not necessarily benchmark on “the largest tech companies by market capitalization; or by sales/net revenue; or by employment size.”
The focus will largely be on indigenous companies, including public institutions that have embraced change, inspiringly handled customer loyalty and retention; despite their size, and have demonstrated uncanny resilience, robustness and responsiveness to the challenges and inherent market opportunities in no easy way.
The 2023 list include Open Access Data Centres (OADC); FinTrak Software Co. Ltd; Ezzential Global Services Ltd; Crystalfix Nigeria LTD (CNL); Cedarview Communications Limited (CCL); Zora Communication Limited; Information Connectivity Solution Limited (ICSL); Unitellas International Limited; Swift Telephone Network Ltd (STN); HD Technologies; Smart Web Nigeria Limited.
