On Friday February 27, 2015 SMW Lagos attendees are encouraged to #GetLocal and explore Lagos’s tech and creative communities. The city’s most innovative companies and organizations will host a variety of off-campus #SMWLagosExplore experiences at Lagos’s tech hubs, cultural institutions, co-working spaces and startups! #SMWLagosExplore gives locals the opportunity to experience first hand the great work and vibrant community of Africa’s “Upwardly Mobile” community.
This event will take participants on a guided tour of Andela’s 6000+ sq ft integrated working and living space. Through the eyes of this repurposed hospital in the eyes of Yaba, we will walk participants through a day in the life of an Andela Fellow. After the tour, we will show a brief video and host a Q&A session at our large rooftop patio overlooking Yaba. Participants will then be free to network and we’ll close the event.
This event is designed to engage people interested in exploring Andela’s new model of education that focuses on finding brilliant young people in Nigeria who are passionate about technology and turning them into highly sought after software developers. We are especially looking to attract, government officials, executive management of technology and telecommunications companies, and prominent members of press and society.
