OtuNwachinemere/Cafe and co-workspaces in Abuja
Cafes and co-workspaces, while not globally novel, have proven to be a big break to the members of Nigeria's emerging gig economy and community of young entrepreneurs in the city of Abuja where office rent costs can be quite exorbitant for start-ups. We will hold a series of online edit-a-thons to create and improve content on Cafe and Co-work spaces in Abuja as there is barely any information on the subject on Wikidata. We will also attempt to provide matching photos.
