Introducing EDUGIST: Africa’s Leading Education Newsroom and Lab

Edugist is a data-driven, impact-based media and consulting firm dedicated to enabling access to inclusive and quality education.

By leveraging our deep expertise, data-driven insights, and commitment to innovation and excellence, we seek to be the definitive source of intel-driven solutions and strategic consultancy for individuals, corporates and governments in Nigeria and Africa.

Education sits at the heart of every pursuit of development in every nation or cultural sphere. However, information on Africa’s education sector seldom makes media headlines or conference agendas.

Our purpose is to strengthen education by providing information and solutions that will enable every key player to achieve their pursuits. By increasing media coverage of the education space, and by improving access to information and insights, we seek to help every stakeholder make informed decisions and implement actionable solutions.

Our Approach to Enabling Education

1. Information

Driving transformation through data-driven insights

2. Resourcing

Strengthening education cannot be done with the requisite resource. This is why we focus on enhancing manpower competence through opportunities and trainings.

3. Strategic Partnerships  

To enable the highest standard of quality delivery, we relentlessly build high value strategic collaborations with a wide range of critical stakeholders
