With over 150 universities in Nigeria and about 1.9 million students enrolled in them, there is a need to equip undergraduates with relevant skills. This will better prepare them for life after school as well as help them embrace entrepreneurship.  It is for this reason that Plaqad has embarked on its project – Plaqad CAP – to help 100,000 young Nigerians leverage the opportunities available through digital media.
