It began with this post by Garage48, on its plan to be in Africa
For the first time in its existence, the Garage48 event series is coming to Lagos. Together with two world companies, Google and Nokia, it will take place from the 6th to the 8th of May 2011 at the Lagos Resource Centre, Victoria Island. Originally developed in Europe, Estonia and expanded to other countries, the purpose of the event is to build new web and mobile services in one single weekend – 48 hours.
Lagos is done! Remarkably fine, indeed. The next stop is Accra Ghana. And here is it.
Together with Google and Nokia another event of Garage48 will be launched in Ghana on the 13th of May. Garage48 Accra is second in Africa, following the Nigeria’s gathering, which was sold out in just 4 days. Extreme developing weekend for local technology professionals, entrepreneurs and marketers will take place at Kofi Annan Centre of Excellence in ICT.
