About this event

On the 27th January, 2024, 120 people converged at the Faculty of Computing, BUK New Site. 


To learn how to supercharge their tech careers & stand out using soft skills. 

4 speakers delivered scintillating speeches — ask those present. So much knowledge. So much revelations. A couple of sweets to savor also went down. 

From that congregation, 9 teams emerged. 10 people per team. Each team is assigned an SDG-focused tech product that can solve immediate problems within the University community. 

Join us on February 10th to watch these teams present. They have had 2 weeks to cook, to collaborate, to think outside the boxes of their academic courses of study. 

February 10th and they'll serve us the magic they've made. 

A solid line-up of judges that we'll unveil, soon (keep your eyes glued to our Twitter handle). 9 products that have never been launched in BUK! 

3 winners to split #100k in the ratio 5;3:2. 

If you missed out on the first event, don't miss this one, too. 

Come cheer up your friends and enemies. Come watch magic unfold! 

Side Note: There'll be an entire session dedicated to discussing the Google Solutions Challenge — a chance to win yourself some $$$$$ if selected. 

Limited spaces available. So, RSVP now!
