The idea behind a ‘Made in Lagos’ badge — a stamp on products coming out of Lagos — was conceived in 2014 by Kene Udeze to identify and showcase the collective inventiveness of Lagos, as a community, through its people and products, and contribute to the Nigerian narrative at large.
Kene Udeze went on to design the current one, but steps for implementing it were never taken.
However, lately, there has been a perceived need to revive the badge — or create another with help from the community — with hopes of having startups adopt it in the long run. As the ecosystem strives to create an identity for itself through the formation of a tech cluster, the badge could come to reinforce these efforts by instilling a sense of belonging and purpose — a unifier of sorts as we embark on a common quest.
So, the aim of this poll is to answer the following questions:
Should startups adopt a Made in Lagos badge?
If yes, should the current one be made the official one?
- No, create a new one
