A world where we wake up to an automated home powered by AI and the internet of things, where we can walk or bike to all the amenities we need, where we are joined in the evening by like-minded friends for a happy hour by the beach.
From reliable electricity, high-speed internet, to security and air quality, Talent City will be a sustainable city, a destination for creativity, innovation, and opportunity.
Our cities have not been innovated or planned for decades if not centuries. They are constantly trying to catch up to technological advancements. Here, we are building a city that truly integrates world class talent, technology and infrastructure.
We are here to reimagine the future of cities with a technology driven approach, where a fully integrated digital platform unites every aspect of life from housing and transit to shopping and smart furnishing.
Talent City rests on the ideals of Free Trade Zones as key to unlock cities of the future.
Africa is the emerging giant tech hub of the world. By the turn of the century, a third of all people will be African. Africa’s population will grow from 1.2 billion today to 4.5 billion in the next 80 years.
A majority will be city-dwellers and yet, Nigeria with a population of close to 200 million people has only seven cities accommodating more than a million people each.
Africa has an opportunity to build more sustainable cities for exponential population growth.
Talent City will be a chain of charter cities focused on creating technology-enabled jobs with its own entrepreneurial-centric regulations and bylaws.
We look to replicate the success stories of Shenzhen, Dubai, and Bangalore, and become the new tech capital of the world.
“I care a lot about my country and looking into its future, it will have a large population of smart young people who can work on the internet. However, infrastructure for doing so is very scarce. It is important to create scalable infrastructure to enable more people to build.”
