The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), in association with Microban Standard Communications limited have put together a software development competition they’ve tagged e-Solve.
From their website, e-Solve aims to expose Nigerian software entrepreneurs and give them visibility. The focus for this year’s competition is Health or Education on E-governance. As with all things Nigerian, geo-politics have found a way to play a part. The best apps from each geo-political zone are chosen first before the winning app is chosen at the centre.
One more thing, there are no cash prizes for this competition. Winners will be exposed on such platforms as GITEX and eNigeria. I have to confess to being unfamiliar with both. The aim of the competition is “to encourage software entrepreneurs to do more” and other such laudable objectives.
If you’re still interested, you should apply here before midnight Saturday 27th September 2014.
