The i-HQ Project

The i-HQ Project is an industry led initiative that aims to accelerate the growth of technology innovation and entrepreneurship for economic prosperity in Nigeria.

The project will leverage the innovation assets within the technology cluster located around Herbert Macaulay Way, Yaba in building an ‘innovation city’ - a hotspot for creative ventures where all key stakeholders (academics, industry and government) find adequate infrastructure, resources and an enabling environment to thrive while collaborating. i-HQ = Silicon Lagoon

The Phase I of the initiative include:   Centre of Excellence  —  Broadband Active i-HQ  —  Traffic Jam Free i-HQ

Center of Excellence

The Centre of Excellence – will serve as a shared facility and nexus point for collaboration amongst all players within and outside of the i-HQ. Our goal is to acquire the 6 Storey Building located at 294, Herbert Macaulay Way Sabo, Yaba.

The building, which currently houses Co-creation Hub Nigeria, will accommodate other key players (activate the companies with the button below) with numerous shared services including IT, Security and Business Services. The occupants of the building will collectively provide leadership, evangelization, best practices, research, training to accelerate the economic contribution and global positioning of the Nigerian Technology Ecosystem'.

Broadband Active i-HQ

In conjunction with the Lagos State Innovation Advisory Council and MainOne Cable Company, the partnership will drive the installation of fibre optic cables along Herbert Macaulay Way, Murtala Mohammed Way and University Road in Yaba Lagos. This move will enhance the connectivity of the cluster members and open up i-HQ for other technology businesses.

A Coop Style ISP will also be established to serve businesses and residential properties in i-HQ. This will be driven through a Wi-Fi model available to all registered users within the area.

Traffic Jam Free i-HQ

In conjunction with LASG and the Innovation Advisory Council, the partnership will explore a scientific approach in conducting an in-depth analysis of the causes of heavy traffic on Herbert Macaulay Way to identify a lasting means of limiting the effect on i-HQ businesses and residents of the area.

Data will be gathered through cameras installed at different intervals on the entire Herbert Macaulay Way to document causes of traffic on the road for 1 full month (day and night).
