GE created the Garages program in 2012 to reinvigorate America’s interest in invention, innovation, and manufacturing. In 2014, Garages went global with four weeks of intensive workshops at GE’s offices in Lagos, Nigeria, using leading edge advanced manufacturing technologies including 3D printers, CNC mills, and laser cutters. Based on the immense success of the first installation, GE Nigeria launched a permanent installation of the Lagos Garage in December 2016.

The GE Lagos Garage is a hub for training, strategy development, advanced manufacturing-based innovation and collaboration. So far, five cohorts of 141 entrepreneurs have gone through the program. During this period, several viable micro and small business enterprises have been birthed and are thriving as a result of training and support received during the Garage training program.
