Nigerian EdTech: 50 Start-ups Market Map

A growing and diverse sector

Nigeria has a bustling EdTech scene, but what is it about the education sector that is drawing so much attention? We decided to map out 50 of the most innovative tech companies to understand more about where founders are focussed.

We found businesses building solutions across 11 different verticals including learning management, home-schooling, fee management and vocational development. Solutions span school-age students to young professionals eager to further develop work-place skills.

Nearly half of the companies that we found are building products in E-Learning or content distribution, a vertical where we expect to see continued growth globally post COVID-19 as more schools and universities move online.
