This initiative aims to promote the spirit of entrepreneurship in ICT among the youth and also to ensure the continuous creation of investible ideas and startup founders that will liven the local ecosystem to work and grow. This event also presents an alternative viable career path for IT practitioners and enthusiasts, which may also enable them to create relevant solutions for problems in their respective communities, specific industries or for the country.”
