The Telecommunication and Technology Sustainability Working Group has announced the launch of an initiative to encourage innovation among young talents in the country’s technology and telecommunications sectors.
The group stated that the initiative tagged ‘Innovation Makers’ Challenge,’ would feature a talent discovery competition, an intensive boot camp, and culminate in a high-profile exhibition and conference.
In a statement, the group said, “Young innovators aged between 18 and 35 are cordially invited to participate in the innovators challenge by showcasing their original technology-driven ideas and products.
“To participate in the challenge and supercharge your journey in technology innovation, simply visit www.ttswg-imc.com/apply. Submission should include a 90-second video pitch of your innovation, as well as response to the accompanying questions. Entries are open from September 11th – October 16th.”
The Lead Consultant of TTSWG Secretariat, Bekeme Olowola, added, “Nigeria is rich in talent that needs more support, encouragement, and development to flourish and become major contributors to the nation’s economic growth.
According to him, the country has often celebrated ideas that have no significant impact on national development.
“The IMC is designed to celebrate and empower young creatives in the technology space who can make a positive difference,” he remarked.
