The Co-founder of GoDo,Chukwuemeka Fred Agbata Jnr. “CFA” recently returned from Berlin, three months after an official visit to Stockholm on the invitation of the Swedish Institute/Swedish Embassy Abuja to understudy the Swedish Innovation Ecosystem.
This trip to Berlin followed an invitation from Alexander Count Lambsdorff, MP, as part of the Bundestag week.
