Bridgia Joins Google to Channel Talent Pipelines in African Higher Institutions

Bridgia Africa, a firm that connects African higher institutions to the industry to drive innovation and student skill development, has announced it has joined the Google for Education Integrated Solutions Initiative.

Bridgia said the call for higher education to be more responsive to industry needs is a global one, adding that this is evident in the increased industry demand for graduates with innovation and technology skills.

It further stated that industry linkage offices such as Career Services in most African universities typically lack access to digital resources and supporting services to support their objectives.

Google for Education partners are a select group of companies recognised for their capabilities to deliver digital services to students and educators. Bridgia, focused on Africa, is now among this group of partners.

Bridgia’s platform provides industry insights, resources, and programmes to make the industry more accessible to Africa’s higher institutions.

Bridgia’s Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Segun Ogunwale commented: “We are delighted to progress from being a Google Cloud Partner to a member of the Google Education Integrated Initiative.

“This collaboration provides us more opportunities to leverage Google for Education’s resources and reach to provide easy access to the Bridgia’s platform for students, faculty, and staff members in Africa’s higher institutions.”

He added that the mission of Bridgia Africa is to champion innovation, employability and development of talent pipelines in African higher institutions.

“These are achieved through widened access to industry information, programmes, and opportunities for students and faculty in collaboration with institutional and industry partners,” Ogunwale said.
