TekSeries, a New York based N.G.O, was founded to contribute to preparing the next group of future ready workers and innovators, amongst underserved segments of Nigeria’s teeming youth population.

The goal is to contribute to addressing perennial challenges of youth unemployment, re-skilling and expansion of access to jobs and entrepreneurial opportunity in myriad sectorsof the local economy.

Our core belief is that technology is largely a force for good and should where necessary, be deployed to disrupt business as usual. Our charge to the young people we encounter, is to gain and maintain in demand skills for a well paid career, but to also utilize said skills to create value adding entities, that redress societal and economic inefficiencies around them.


We have set out to achieve these goals by forming core industry partnerships and adopting a multi-pronged targeted approach to services. This includes free digital skills workshops for various ages and skill levels; Incubator program sponsorhips; Annual Solution Prizes and StartUp funding for viable products or services
