Every year, AngelHack embarks on a tour across the world for their Global Hackathon Series. Over the course of Summer 2018, they’ll be hitting six continents, bridging the gap between Silicon Valley innovation and entrepreneurs all over the world.

This year’s theme: Seamless Technology. This hackathon series for all levels of experience is entering Nigeria for the first time this July.

Hackathons are built for rapid innovation, and rapid isn’t always pretty. But no matter the roadblock, broken code or bumps, we continue on and push forward, together. There’s no boundary or limit to what we can create.

The competition will have themes and prizes around: Impact, Smart Contracts, Ethereum Blockchain, Transparency & a LOT more. Any idea solving a problem in Nigeria with technology is eligible.

At least one Lagos team will gain entry into AngelHack’s HACKcelerator culminating in Silicon Valley Week and Global Demo Day for top teams. ConsenSys will give 3 ETH to one team with the best use of Ethereum.

“We are expecting to bring out more developers than ever before and have projected a five percent bump in the female attendance. Over the past six years by introducing hackathons, virtual competitions, accelerator programs, and various developer initiatives to over 100 cities I’ve seen some of the best rapidly-prototyped ideas the developer ecosystem has to offer. Through the HACKcelerator and other accelerator programs, I’ve had the pleasure of working closely with these entrepreneurs and watched as their startups turned into reality; proving that the projects don’t stop when the hackathon does,” said AngelHack Founder & CEO, Sabeen Ali.

AngelHack Lagos will be held at the Africa FinTech Foundry (AFF), a pan-African accelerator shaping the future of financial services in Africa through a unique Accelerator program, an innovation space, entrepreneurship training, capital investments into growth stage technology startups and more.

So join us! Create something cool. Meet great people. Win great prizes. Who knows, your founder journey may begin July 28th weekend in Lagos, Nigeria!
