Last week, I gave a presentation at the Nigeria Digital Sense Forum 2010 about the startup ecosystem in Nigeria. The event which held at the Golden Gate Restaurant in Ikoyi gathered ICT experts, industry leaders, technology entrepreneurs and students.
Digital Sense Africa is an initiative of Remnek Kommunications Ventures; a group of ICT analysts and public relations consultants, with continental media affiliates as part of its enlightenment strategies to engage Nigerians for sustainable deployment and utilization of technologies in order to make sense out of the burgeoning revolution.
This year’s forum was organized in collaboration with NCC and endorsed by the Nigeria Internet Registration Association (NIRA), ICANN, Nigeria Internet Exchange Point Ltd, Association of Telecom Companies of Nigeria (ATCON), Association of Licensed Telecom Operators of Nigeria (ALTON), Nigeria Computer Society (NCS), to name a few.
Here is my presentation below. I’ll be posting photos and videos of the event soon.
As we look forward to more and more technology events in Nigeria this year and beyond, I’ll hope to see the many ideas, thoughts and words turn into actions. Perhaps this year’s Barcamp Nigeria with a focus on driving local content would push this further.
It would be great to see one of the break-out sessions develop an idea, brainstorm about the idea and pre-launch a new product time-bound. If you would be attending this year’s Barcamp Nigeria, you can register here.
