Build a global business in Nigeria

We are building the first Digital Zone in Nigeria where global technology-powered companies — such as tech startups, business service providers, e-commerce companies, outsourcing firms, digital content providers, and so on — can operate and provide services remotely without the need to be physically present in Nigeria. Itana provides the ideal online jurisdiction to operate and scale across Africa. We will support you, end-to-end, on your digital free zone business incorporation, banking, licenses, immigration, and other business operational services.

Eco-friendly “live-work-build” environment to do your best work

The Itana District will be a model of the future for African cities and will feature co-working spaces, residential blocks, sustainable parks, and more, all powered by a fully integrated digital app that unites every aspect of life.
