Techstripped Africa launches inaugural Innovation Challenge to empower tech students in Ghana
Techstripped Africa has announced its first-ever Innovation Challenge, aimed at inspiring and empowering technology students across universities in Ghana.
The Techstripped Innovation Challenge invites aspiring innovators to develop cutting-edge solutions to address pressing community, national, and global issues.
With the rapid advancement of technology and the immense potential it holds, Techstripped Africa aims to provide a platform for tech students to showcase their skills, creativity, and problem-solving abilities.
The challenge is set to ignite innovation and foster a culture of entrepreneurship among the future leaders of Ghana’s tech ecosystem.
The Techstripped Innovation Challenge will be conducted in two phases:
Phase 1 – Idea Pitch:
In this phase, participating teams are required to submit a pitch deck outlining their innovative solution. The pitch decks will be evaluated by a panel of esteemed judges, comprising industry experts, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders. Ten exceptional teams will advance to the next phase based on the creativity, feasibility, and potential impact of their ideas.
Phase 2 – Demo Day:
The ten selected teams will have the opportunity to showcase their solutions at the highly anticipated Demo Day. They will present their prototypes, explain their technical implementations, and demonstrate the market potential of their solutions. The teams will be evaluated based on their presentation skills, technical expertise, and the scalability of their projects. A distinguished panel of judges will select the winning team, which will receive recognition, mentorship, and valuable resources to further develop their project.
“We are excited to launch the Techstripped Innovation Challenge and provide a platform for tech students to unleash their innovative potential,” said Kwame Owusu Ansah, the founder of Techstripped Africa.
