Startup Weekend Owerri, Imo State
February 26th, 2016

Welcome to the first Startup Weekend in the eastern part of Nigeria

Some people have great ideas but they need others to make it happen. You need to stand on the shoulder of giants. Come and share your idea and also get ideas. Build a minimum viable product or services in 54 hours and validate if someone needs it.

This event will help identify potentials and ideas that could be pitched to investors as well as help to form startups to reduce unemployment. You could see the need and then take the lead. It will engender collaboration among skills, talents, industries and institutions.

Apart from the prizes for the winners, the attendees will learn how to use Lean’s Canvas to develop a business idea and validate it with real potential customers. Some could learn new coding techniques, design techniques, marketing strategies, project management as well as the ability to work in a team. Certificate of participation awaits any attendee.

The mentors for this event will be named soon.

Also, the judges will be communicated as soon as they become available.
