It attracted several young participants who joined in to learn more on how they can leverage technology and innovation to drive business efficiency.
Commenting on the session, the Executive Director, Regulatory and Corporate Affairs, 9mobile, Mr. Abdulrahman Ado stated that the discussions tied into the global theme for this year’s international youth day celebration, “Transforming Food Systems: Youth Innovation for Human and Planetary Health” which highlights the very strategic and important roles youths play in the general context of the global economy for growth and sustainability.
He noted that in order to effectively play their part, the youths must be creative in their thinking.
Also, he said the youths must take advantage of the opportunities in technology to power innovation in their businesses.
Defining innovation, Tricia Biz noted that innovation doesn’t necessarily mean inventing something new.
