MobileMonday comes to Kenya.
MobileMonday is to launch its Nairobi chapter on the 11th March 2010. This comes a year of background work whereby MobileMonday formed a strategic partnership with the World Bank to bring the community’s concepts to several African countries. The Kampala chapter in Uganda will also be launched on the 8th March 2010 and a new South African chapter will open soon in Cape Town soon. MobileMonday is a global community of mobile industry visionaries, developers and influentials fostering cooperation and cross-border business development through virtual and live networking events to share ideas, best practices and trends from global markets.
The Nairobi chapter will be launched by Jari Tammisto who is the CEO of MobileMonday who will elaborate how the Nairobi chapter will work in conjunction with the global MobileMonday community. The event will also have invited speakers who will make presentations within the contextual theme “Mobile Innovation: Startups and Services” to over 100 mobile professionals from Kenya. Each MobileMonday chapter meets to discuss local issues and report on mobile trends at monthly meetings. More information on MobileMonday can be found on the global web site at www.mobilemonday.net
