The economic challenge that Nigeria faces today is one that calls for Innovation across different sectors of Nigeria Economy. Wikipedia defined Innovation as a “new idea, device, or method”. Innovation is also the application of better solutions that meet new requirements, un-articulated needs, or existing market needs. This is accomplished through more-effective products, processes, services, technologies, or business models that are readily available to markets, governments and society. The term “innovation” can be defined as something original and more effective and, as a consequence, new, that “breaks into” the market or society and drive great economic development. The Nigeria Innovation Summit is set to promote Innovation across different sectors of Nigeria’s economy.
