Edo Tech Conference
Rural Development Hackathon & Business Accelerator Pitch 1.0
We believe ideas and thoughts have the power to change our world for the better. That is why we build a future where anything is possible.
</ Overview >
Nigeria's rural population for 2021 was 99,895,289. Thus, over 53% of Nigeria’s population lives in rural areas.
It is of crucial importance that we focus on coming up with technology solutions that can enhance life in rural Nigeria by diffusing critical problems they face. We invite you to turn your groundbreaking ideas into action for a lasting social change. This is your chance to participate and build solutions that will uplift the lives of fellow citizens in rural and impoverished areas.
