Ghana-based incubator, iSpace will host a mobile apps showcase and the TURN8 Innov-a-thon pitching competition this Saturday, July 4.
The events aim to give startups exposure, allowing them show off their products and compete to be part of a four-month Dubai accelerator programme.
The first event, a mobile apps showcase, will offer developers the opportunity to showcase their apps to the general public for feedback and promotion.
The TURN8 Innov-a-thon pitch competition, which will take place later in the afternoon, gives anyone in the community an opportunity to pitch their startup ideas for the chance to participate in the four-month TURN8 seed accelerator programme in Dubai.
Programmes Manager at iSpace, Alison Roadburg said: “With our world as highly globalised as it is, we find ourselves latching onto mobile apps that have been developed in Europe and North America,”
“Though we find much inspiration from products designed and developed abroad, it is equally as important, if not more so, to recognise and purchase apps developed locally – which are contextually more relevant, made by Ghanaians, for Ghanaians.”
The events will hold at the iSPace Foundation hub in Accra, Ghana.
