A lot of techies fall into two categories – those who only complain about the regulatory and policy environment affecting tech or those who are unwilling to do anything about it and indeed feel that tech or hubs cannot solve regulatory problems. Well, they both may be wrong. Here is a chance for you to finally solve some of those regulatory or policy issues you think are too much pain in the neck for techies who want to change the world to deal with. So where are my ICT policy people at?

The first ever ICT policy hackathon will hold on the 20th and 22nd in Lagos and Abuja respectively. If you’re in Lagos on the 20th March or Abuja on the 22nd March, join other entrepreneurs, investors, and next-generation innovators to develop policy solutions that will be shared directly with the Vice President’s Office and the Office for ICT, Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Nigeria’s first ICT Policy Hackathon. The policy hackathon will explore ways in which the Nigerian public sector could support entrepreneurship, innovation and youth employment

The Hackathon is organised by “Make-IT in Africa”, a project funded by the Federal German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), and implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ), in conjunction with i4Policy. i4policy is a pan-African movement of innovation hubs and community catalysts who support Governments to improve innovation, entrepreneurship and youth employment policies.

The Lagos Hackathon holds at the Impact Hub and the Abuja Hackathon holds at the Civic Innovation Lab.
