Dataleum, a Nigerian company that specialises in technology training, has been named the West African regional winner of this year’s Global Startup Awards Africa. The most promising startups in Africa are showcased and scaled through the Global Startup Awards Africa.

The competition this year focused on businesses that support Web 3.0 technologies, sustainable business models, green innovation, and workplace diversity, as well as solutions for agriculture, climate change, business, healthcare, education, and mobility & logistics.

In the West African region, Dataleum took first place in the Ed-Tech category.

Dataleum’s chief executive officer, Bode Roberts, commented on the honour by saying, “Six months ago, we won the ‘Startup of the Year Award,’ given by Art of Technology Lagos and the Lagos State Government. Now, we have solidified our impact footprints by standing in for all of West Africa. This award honours our tenacity, commitment, enthusiasm, and technical skill, all of which have made a significant contribution to the development of the African tech ecosystem.
