The National Board for Technology Incubation (NBTI) says it is partnering with the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN) to promote the products of its trainees.
Dr Mohammed Jubrin, the Director-General of the board, made this known to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Abuja.
Jubrin said that in order to achieve the mandate of the board to commercialise Nigeria’s indigenous products, it was necessary to collaborate with stakeholders in the manufacturing sector.
“We are currently working with the MAN Resource Centre where the products of the entrepreneurs can now be taken to 200 supermarkets across the country.
“This will enable the entrepreneurs to concentrate on producing quality products because they do not have to worry about how the products will be circulated.
“The association has resource centre in Lagos but it serves the whole country.
“We have 32 Technology Incubation Centres (TICs) spread across the country, meaning that all products made by our entrepreneurs have a ready market.
