Ghana is having its maiden forLoopAfrica event on Friday, November 11th at the iSpace Hub in Accra.
forLoopAfrica is an independent community of software developers and enthusiasts across Africa. The organization has, in the last 18 months of operation, spawned into a fundamental fabric of the African tech ecosystem. Famed for frequently hosting meetups and hackathons in packed out venues across several cities and campuses in Nigeria, forLoopAfrica has since established its presence in other countries. The many forLoop hashtags and handles on Twitter bear witness to the rapid spread of the movement.
Outside Nigeria, the community has already established networks in Kenya, Uganda, and now Ghana. There’s already been a maiden forLoop event in Kampala this year. Ghana is next – in November.
Some of the speakers already billed to speak at forLoopGhana include Bubunyo Nyavor, Miishe Addy, Chris Nwamba, Neo Ighodaro, and Micheal Agbo-Tettey Soli.
Hosts for the event are Edem Kumodzi, Oreoluwa Ogundipe and Joshua Oguntade. Sponsors for the event are iSpace, Flutterwave, Cloudinary and Africastalking.
For its first meetup in Ghana, forLoopGhana will host a session at the event dedicated to showcasing startups and products built by Ghanaians. Founders and builders in the country can fill this form ahead of the event to get the opportunity to showcase on the day.
