- For our school portal system solution, if you would recall, we informed you in the last quarter that we are rebranding it to TESPIRE. We have news, TESPIRE is now officially registered to operate as a company in the State of Delaware in the United States. Development of the new version alongside the various modules is progressing; our technical team is doing the work. Anticipate more updates; we are building much more than a school portal.
So, if you are a stakeholder in the educational sector or you are just interested in seeing what we are up to with TESPIRE. Please register for our weekly demo Wednesdays at 10 am. On TESPIRE, everybody has a place, our most exciting feature is the ‘Agent Feature’; anyone can register as an agent on Tespire and onboard schools on their own for a certain percentage as commission. Join the Demo session for more details, and we will appreciate your feedback.
- As part of our programs, we had our summer tech camp for kids between the ages of 7-16. The kids were trained in web development, graphics design, and scratch, with additional benefits like Virtual reality games, Communication, and leadership skills. At JD lab we believe it’s never too early to start the learning path to tech, visit our website www.academy.jdlab.ng to see available courses and enrollment details.
As we disclosed in our previous newsletter, our NYSC partnership started in August. Our team trained over 100 corp members for the Skill acquisition training aspect of the 3-week camp experience at NYSC Camp, Paiko, Minna. They were introduced to courses like frontend development, backend development, and graphics design. We hope that this serves as a basis for a future career in the tech space.
As an organization that believes in providing support and building capacity for entrepreneurial youth, we have two exciting programs coming up soon. The first is the Ideation Hackathon for university students, and the other is a global internship program for graduates. We will inform you when we plan to start and how you can apply on our social media pages. Follow us @jdlabng across all platforms.
