TechPoint Africa, a news publishing platform dedicated to chronicling the impact of technology on the African narrative has decided to embark on a tour around 4 cities in South-Western Nigeria.
They report stories happening in our environment while bringing the people closer to startups and starting real conversations on how technology impacts the lives of real people and businesses.
According to their PR team: “Techpoint Innovation tour is driven by a desire to expose hidden tech talents in new and emerging markets across Nigeria and Africa. Our discoveries in Abuja, Kaduna, Aba, Uyo and Jos in the last two years, sparked up a lot of interest to continue on the exciting journey.
This year, we would be visiting Akure, Ife, Ibadan and Abeokuta between November 5th -17th 2018. We would be spending approximately 30 hours of travelling, covering 1,515km of excitement, exhilaration, meet-ups, interviews, discussions, radio tours, vox-pops, street campaign.
We plan to engage all tech lovers and entrepreneurs in these areas and expose them to the global community. We hope to engage like-minded techies, innovators and the true entrepreneurs that are taking on challenges of building their respective communities with the aid of tech.”
