It started with the introduction of the concept; it further discussed the current state of infopreneurship in Nigeria. The paper further highlighted the benefits and challenges of the practice of infopreneurship in Nigeria. It also stated that developed nations have been able to checkmate unemployment, hooliganism, robbery, terrorism and several other national challenges by encouraging infopreneurship through support from government and corporate organizations. The practice has been challenged in Nigeria by lack of structure and coordination from several operators. The paper concluded that infopreneurship plays a strategic role in the economic sector of Nigeria.
