Earlier this year, we were honored to receive the 2016 Secretary of State’s Award for Corporate Excellence from Secretary Kerry at the annual ACE ceremony on January 5th. It was a momentous occasion for us, and a true testament to the amazing work our developers are producing for our partners on a daily basis. Last week, we welcomed United States Ambassador W. Stuart Symington to our Lagos, Nigeria office to present the plaque commemorating this accolade.
It’s no secret that the tech ecosystem in Nigeria is blossoming, and Ambassador Symington recognizes that Andela is a driving factor for that success.
Ambassador Symington noted that the award recognizes Andela’s high standards of responsible business conduct and innovation in helping companies grow their engineering teams with the most talented developers in Africa.
Thanks for taking the time to visit Andela, Ambassador Symington, and bringing the international technology spotlight to Lagos, Nigeria. Check out the video below showcasing his time at Andela!
