09 Feb Save the date: 20-22 february: THE LARGEST HACKATHON of WEST AFRICA!
Question: What do you get when you bring together Ghana’s top talent and innovative leaders from around the world?
Answer: A new generation of West Africans poised to make a difference by innovating real impact across the continent. We know dynamic youth are up to the challenge and we believe this is deeply necessary. Africa’s population will continue to rapidly increase throughout the century, further constraining efforts to address poverty, create jobs, and protect the environment. Let’s envision a landscape where African citizens source and adopt the best technologies to address local needs, become emerging entrepreneurs and create impactful innovation.
The hackathon will be only the grand finale of a 7 week long program at Hub Accra, in Ghana, to provide the opportunity for the next generation of leaders to come together, hope, and execute positive impacts for their cities and their countries. Transformation is an incremental process, so we encourage the participation of every individual, at every skill level, to push the world in the right direction. The sum of such parts will always lead to a greater whole.
The program will guide entrepreneurs to develop businesses that aren’t only for subsistence living but are also innovative. Lasting from late January through February 2015, the event series will include a multiple initiatives that will culminate in the largest hackathon ever in West Africa!
