Embracing Roothub’s events for the future and optimum productivity has been a recurring topic on my mind in recent times. Sometimes I wish I could reach out to every young man on the streets of Uyo, Akwa Ibom State and preach directly into their skull that there is a window to escape poverty if they can painstakingly become a part of the tech ecosystem.
Roothub is one of the leading hubs in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital. Strategically situated at AKEES Plaza, opposite the popular Ibom hall on IBB Way, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State. The twin brothers and co-founders of the hub works tirelessly in creating the enabling environment for every young person in the State to acquire tech skills.
From graphic design to coding to gamification, the hub offers several opportunities for every young person. As a tech evangelist who is bent on preaching the advantages of being a techie at the slightest opportunity, I have followed the activities of this hub in the past months and years and believe I should draw your attention to what you stand to gain by embracing these opportunities through several tech events at the hub.
