Who we are

Data Science Nigeria is a non-profit run and managed by the Data Scientists Network Foundation. Our vision is to accelerate Nigeria’s development through a solution-oriented application of machine learning in solving social/business problems and to galvanize data science knowledge revolution, which can position Nigeria to become the outsourcing hub for international Data Science/Advanced Analytics/Big Data projects, with opportunity to access at least 1% share of the global big data and analytics market, valued at $150b in 2017 ($203b in 2020).

Our Approach

We adopt a practitioner-led model where experienced and hands-on data scientists in Nigeria and in the Diaspora train and mentor young Nigerians through face-to-face, virtual coaching classes, project-based support and holiday boot camps funded by individuals and corporate organizations.

Our Success

• 3 Nigerian-centric Data Science products being supported in the ecosystem.
• The largest convergence of academia and industry practitioners as mentors with 10 PhD instructors from 4 continents.
• Over 3,000 participants in online and offline initiatives.
