An exclusive group of 100 companies operating and influencing policies in Africa’s first free zone for the digital economy.
get started

Africa is undergoing a significant digital revolution.

Itana, as a key member of DiFZIN (Digital Free Zones In Nigeria Initiative), has partnered with PwC, AFC, Future Africa and Charter Cities Institute to engage the Federal Government of Nigeria to improve the policies and regulatory framework for tech and service-based businesses to operate with ease in Nigeria and to scale across the continent.

Traditionally, you must have a physical presence to secure a free zone business license in Nigeria, and fees are exorbitant. With the Itana Zone, we’re building a borderless economy where you can incorporate your global business remotely, from anywhere in the world, and at a fraction of the cost, thereby unlocking talent and capital to scale.

Shenzhen grew from a small fishing village, expanded 10,000-fold in 40 years to become one of the ten largest economies in the world; Dubai from a desert country to housing over 30 Free Zones, and Delaware from an industrial town to a powerhouse for global business incorporation. Itana is taking learnings, and developing the next E-Estonia, Delaware, and DIFC in Africa.
