9-10 Oct 2013
The Core, 1st Floor South,
Cnr Kikuyu and Leeuwkop Streets,
IBM SmartCamp events have been tremendously successful over the last three years. Last year's winner of IBM Global Entrepreneur of the Year was MoDe, an African startup with a solution that delivers nano credit in nano seconds.
In July 2012, MoDe had aspirations to go global in five years. Being part of the IBM Global Entrepreneur initiative and participating in SmartCamp helped propel this Kenyan company to realize their goal in less then a year. They are a fantastic success story, and we expect many more great successes coming out of Africa.
This year, startups converged in Johannesburg, South Africa, on 9-10 Oct 2013 for the SmartCamp event in collaboration with the Tech4Africa annual conference.
Congratulations to MySmartFarm
