This year, MTN Ghana opened applications for App Developers with amazing app ideas that would provide sustainable solutions to some major social issues in Ghana.
On September 10th, 2021, 26 participants out of 171 enrolled applicants presented their Apps to the panel judge during a virtual event. Some solutions in FoodTech, FinTech, HealthTech, and various other sectors were presented by the developers. Some of the participants presented in person whiles others connected to the event via zoom.
Some outstanding apps included the Health Management App where patients can easily talk to their doctors via a platform that has the patients’ health history.
Another app that was demoed looked to solve the problem of getting information from all schools in Ghana.
With the Ayoba Super App, MTN has created a way of creating and managing apps with the Ayoba Super App.
In a conversation with the Chief Marketing Officer of MTN Ghana, Noel Kojo-Ganson said, “As part of MTN’s Ambition 2025, the business is ably positioning itself to be a digital company, and projects such as the Ayoba Hackathon will help to set the tone for the total transformation of the business into a digital business.”
The grande finale of the #AyobaHackGh is set to happen on 17th September, 2021 where 3 brilliant apps would be funded with amounts of Ghc50,000, Ghc10,000, and Ghc8,000 accordingly.
