Meet our Mentors

At DSN – Data Science Nigeria (also known as Data Scientists Network), we believe that African development can be accelerated through world-class capacity building and talent development in the emerging data/digital revolution. We have also recognized that mentorship and experiential learning can fast-track assimilation and application of learning in high-intensity fields like Data Science, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data and Advanced Analytics. This relational learning principle is also relevant for datapreneurs who require guidance and hand-holding support for sustained growth. This is why we are promoting learning via mentorship through our #MentorAfricanDataScientists.
