#Throwback to #Naijahacks2018 which was a huge success!
Conducted from October 18-25, this year’s #Naijahackshackathon focused on various areas including education, mediatech, fintech and agriculture.
While Naijahacks received 800 applications, 300 of the best applications were selected to participate in the competition.
Without a doubt, this year’s hackathon showcased the innovative nature of Nigerian youths as competitors developed amazing projects. These projects include blockchain technology to enable e-voting, an e-music distribution app that helps new artists share music with consumers, detection of farm diseases by analysis of pictures of affected leaves, e-finance for farmers that bypasses banks among others.
We were inspired by the problem solving skills participants displayed and strongly believe that Africans can solve Africa’s problems.
Therefore, next year @stemhubfoundation will not only provide prizes and judge results, we will also mentor and support #NaijaHacks participants.
We are humbled to have been a part of this year’s hackathon and thank the @NaijaHacks team for providing such an empowering platform.
We hope to see you next year
