IPO48: Kes. 1 Million up for grabs in just 48 hours.
Nairobi and Kenya in general seems to be fast becoming one of the most exciting destinations for ICT initiatives throughout the African continent. On this basis, I just found out that there is an exciting ICT focused competition called IPO48 that will be held in Nairobi between the 29th andÂ 31st of OctoberÂ 2010.
Basically, IPO48 is a boot-camp-style initiative for ICT entrepreneurs and developers to build a new web and mobile services business in just 48 hours.Â The reward for the winning team will be Kes. 1 Million in investment! Now, for someone who has worked in Kenya’s ICT sector for over 10 years, what I can say is that this is the sort of thing that we could have never expected just a few years ago as struggling entrepreneurs. Therefore, its encouraging to see that its becoming the norm.
You can find out more about IPO48 and register for the event either as a sponsor, mentor or competitor by the deadline of the 7th October 2010 here>
