PREAMBLE

The emergence of business models based on innovation, cooperation networks, and the enhancement of endogenous resources, are strong contributors to the development of competitive businesses and economies. This rapid advancement requires vast amounts of information to be made available at the touch of a button. With this huge requirement for knowledge and creativity, blogging becomes the avenue to place information online in the blogger’s unique way, with full control over their content. The 2019 .ng bloggers summit aims to bring bloggers who are spearheading digital initiatives within the digital community together, to offer insights, education and case studies on what promises to be an aspect of the technology industry that is growing exponentially.
