Over one hundred thousand Naira was distributed to investors with brilliant ideas at the launching of a co-working space and technology hub; LiftHub in Calabar, the Cross River State capital last weekend.
LiftHub will be a co-working space for creative and social entrepreneurs in the city of Calabar said cofounder, Anthony Alaribe.
He said it aims to provide a framework necessary for diverse creative and social enterprise to collectively build a more resilient technological ecosystem in the state.
Mr. Alaribe posited that there has been a shortage of space for young entrepreneurs to just walk in, plug-in and work from in Calabar and that the space hopes to provide that.
And, the state government said it will support youth-led initiatives that will improve the socioeconomic space of the state.
The Commissioner for Commerce and Industry, Mr. Peter Egba who disclosed this, said that the government has deliberately excluded low income earners and petty businesses from taxation.
He blamed the proliferation of fake tax collectors on lack of information and advised youths in the state to take the opportunity the hub offers and be in an environment with like minded youths with a difference.
