Title: AfriHacks 2023: Fostering African Innovation and Economic Empowerment
AfriHacks, Africa’s leading hackathon, is making a comeback in its mission to inspire innovation and drive economic empowerment across the continent. Organized by the World Innovation League (WIL), AfriHacks 2023 is set to redefine the technological landscape and provide a unique platform for African talent to shine.
Under the visionary leadership of Uchi Uchibeke, Founder and CEO of Chimoney, AfriHacks, formerly known as NaijaHacks and AfricaHacks, has evolved and now falls under the WIL umbrella. This transformation is a testament to WIL’s commitment to empowering builders, innovators, and startups globally.
AfriHacks 2023 is inclusive and welcomes participants from all skill levels and backgrounds, from aspiring coders to seasoned tech enthusiasts. This inclusivity has been a key feature of the event, bringing together new and experienced talent and allowing them to bring their innovative ideas to life.
A standout feature of AfriHacks is its virtual nature, enabling participants to join from anywhere in the world. Workshops, mentorship sessions, and the highly anticipated Demo Day will all take place online, ensuring accessibility for all.
