Discover X: X Frame

This is a networking event for tech community and hub leaders to interact and exchange ideas in preparation for the Discover X event.

About X Frame

Discover X is an event that seeks to source for solutions to Africa's problems through innovation, using technologies such as Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, and VR/AR/MR. A major objective of Discover X is to encourage collaboration between stakeholders in Africa's tech ecosystem; from the startups and large organizations that are in need of value-adding products to market, to hubs and universities where talents can be sourced.

From June 1-3, 2020, over 1,000 innovators from across the globe including software developers, graphic designers, and user experience specialists are expected to converge in Lagos State, Nigeria for a 48-hr hackathon. They will be building solutions to problems that have been identified by industry players from across different sectors including health, finance, transport, insurance, government, agriculture, and education. The problems would be documented in a white paper which would be produced from an Industry Hack event scheduled to hold in April, two months before Discover X.

Discover X is not just another hackathon event. The mission is to champion a culture of innovation and disruption in African companies. Solutions that will be produced from the hackathon event in June 2020 will be incubated in partnership with selected tech hubs to ensure that the products and/or services get to market. As a result of the importance of such partnership, the Discover X team comprised of volunteers with experience in different sectors will on January 25th, 2020 host tech and community leaders to share ideas, network and seek their commitment to be active supporters of Discover X. Join us as we have this important discussion.
